I am Australian. I am a non smoker and aside from an occasional glass of good wine, I do not drink. I am a professor of physics at the Australian National University. I play guitar in several bands in my home town in Australia. I have a wonderful dog called Marie (a whippet). I have lived in the USA and Europe. I speak fluent German, and I am learning French. I like the outdoors. I am quiet at home but easy to talk to and get along with.
