Born in 1947, I am Director/Principal of Accounting and Financial Solutions, a CPA public accounting, business services and financial strategies practice at Ashgrove in Brisbane ((website hidden)).
My wife died on 3 July 2012 after a long battle with cancer - we had a wonderful life together over nearly 44 years and we have two wonderful adult daughters (Michelle and Nicola).
I enjoy travelling, especially to "off the beaten track destinations" and to Vancouver, Canada where Michelle lives with her husband Kit, and their two boys - 4 yr old Lucas and 2.5 yr old James and the fabulous Oscar the 10 yr old Rottweiller dog.
I am a non smoker, enjoy sharing our stories and experiences with a broad range of people. I generally travel either with people I know or as a single and I am not into group tours (too regimented). I have travelled to many countries in Asia, North America, Europe, Central Asian Republics, Middle East and the Pacific.
I enjoy most foods and look to eat local type dishes of the area I am in. Fortunately, I have no allergies and I am in very good health. I especially enjoy good company with a meal and red wine or other convivialities.
I have an active faith in the Gospel message. I love sharing life with other people, of whatever may be their background, as we are all brothers and sisters in God's beautiful creation..
