Hi, I'm a retired Engineer and my wife Sonia and I have four children, Pauline, Scott, Heidi and Zach. Pauline & Neil have gifted us with two beautiful daughters Melissa & Ruby.
I got the travelling bug through my parents, having lived in Hong Kong and Singapore.
Through my work ( Texas Instruments & Becton Dickinson) I also travelled and lived in Texas, Portugal and Japan. I believe I have seen around 18% of the world and Sonia and I want to see a lot more of it. We both love the sites, smell, sounds, and especially meeting these people and trying their foods.
I have completed building projects for friends and family in the last few years since retiring and keep busy doing my own home and car maintenance. Having two sons they need to be informed of odd jobs and car repairs, normally when their in a jam.
Now I have the time I'm trying to learn to play the acoustic guitar and now getting into music theory and love it. I like most sports and would love to be at the next Olympics or the next, or the next until I make it.
Sonia loves to read and spends a lot of time with the gran children and she want to be the worlds best nan. Mel and Ruby think she is the best. Sonia and her friends have weekly girls meetings to chat and catch up.
Being both retired has now given us the freedom to do what we want when we want. I tell everyone that being retired is like every day being a Sunday, its great
Sonia and I believe in treating all people as equals, respecting their cultures, customs and their beliefs.
