Hey, I’m Brian!

Auckland, New Zealand · Member since December 2011

We are a married couple and we've lived and worked here for well over 30 years. We are very keen on cooking, wine and coffee. Music that we listen to ranges from medieval to the Classical era (Hildegard von Bingen to middle Beethoven). Local interest we have are native birds and bush walking (hiking).

We make silver jewellery by hand in our studio below the guest room. Our home is a 1935 barracks style house and we have done much home renovation ourselves, adding all sorts of decks and a chicken house. We built the studio in 1986 and our daughter lived in the treetop room many years ago.

We recently traveled from this new little country to some old and ancient sites. In April 2012 we went to southern Italy and France, standing for a moment beside Sicilian sassi, Sardinian nuraghi, and French cathar castles. Fabulous.
