Hey, I'm Des!
Queanbeyan, New South Wales, Australia · Member since September 2012

Divorced, I have 2 kids, boys 11 and 6 living with their mum in the US - I try to visit them twice a year. Recently spent 3 weeks with them on their first return to Australia in 4 years - took them fishing, camping and observing Australian wildlife.

Retired. Returned to Chile to take up work teaching English and to explore the literary traditions of my favorite Chilean and Latin American writers and poets, with a view to trying my hand at short story writing.

An adult educator by profession, I tutored university entrants in critical thinking, academic writing and developing the graduate attributes necessary for successful tertiary study and a professional career,

My academic and professional background is in anthropology, philosophy and Spanish, my interests include climate change and resources depletion, and the social and individual psychology of cultural adaptation to the changes these are bringing about.
