I'm a NZ'er, but have lived and worked in Sydney Australia for the last 25 yrs (that puts me in my mid-50's). I'm an academic at the University of New South Wales in Sydney. Outside of my work, I like travelling, new places and experiences, I'm an enthusiastic painter (oils), and I inevitably migrate to art galleries when in new cities. I'm a keen bushwalker/like the wilds. And I enjoy family, friends, fine food and wine, and also a quiet drink with a good book.
