Born in Johannesburg South Africa, my parents migrated to Australia when I was 8 years of age. They fled apartheid South Africa to give their three children a chance at a better life. This is where I met my beautiful wife of four years. We are happily married and do not yet have children, but if we are blessed with them would relish the opportunity.
We are a couple who enjoy art, sport and travel. Having customed many hotels and motels around the world, we find the experience somewhat removed from that experienced by the locals. We hope airbnb will give us a way to stay and experience life as a local would. What better way than to stay in a normal house or apartment.
We believe in Karma and passing good karma around where we can. The underlying core here is a natural respect for our fellow man / women and their possessions.
So who am I?
Since arriving in Australia I have been afforded the opportunity to attend some of the countries best high schools and university. I completed my two bachelors degrees in Economics and Chinese language as I believed back in 1991 that China would shape the future.
In my professional life I have acted in many and varied positions. I worked as a Commercial Manager of a pharmaceutical manufacturer with operations in Asia and Australia and a large staff. I assisted clients to bring products to market while passing strict regulatory guidelines.
To keep life interesting I have also turned my back on that predicted path and then started my own businesses several times. I like the challenge of building something from nothing. It does require a lot of effort and risk but it is fun to watch this grow and most of all are we really alive if we are not challenged.
