I’m one of those country boys that went to the city to study, met an Italian girl on campus and decided to stay. These days, we have two grown sons and a daughter-in-law, and spend our family time on Skype. Some kids move to another city. Ours are a bit more adventurous – they moved to other countries.
When I was young and enthusiastic, I taught Science, Maths and Italian in High Schools. Hopefully, I inspired a few kids and entertained the rest.
After schools, I explored the world of banking and finance, where I got myself an accounting degree – not much call for Biological Sciences in the world of money.
I spent my last fifteen years in the workforce with the Australian Taxation Office, where, although I was employed as a tax auditor, I spent most of my time writing procedures and doing project work to support auditors in the field.
Now I get to do what I love doing: writing.
