A bit about me

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.
