I’m a story teller. I talk an enormous amount and usually at a fast rate, trying to keep up with all of the ideas churning through my brain. I’m a writer of fiction and academic subjects. I’m a traveler and I’ve lived overseas a few times and I’ll probably do that again a few more times down the track. Melbourne is one of my homes, so is Christchurch in New Zealand. I loved Wales when I lived there. Tokyo, Barcelona and San Francisco were excellent to me when I visited them. The best to me was Florence in Italy. It lived up to and surpassed the hype and expectations I had nurtured since I was a teen. The three best days of my life.
