I was born and grew up in New Zealand, but since November of 1997 I've been living and working in the USA as a contractor software engineer. As a contractor, I've moved around a lot, usually by U-hauling myself from one city to another. This is why I've been able to spend time in San Diego, Northern Virginia, Chicago, Northern New Jersey and Los Angeles.
All of my family is either in New Zealand, or in the United Kingdom, which is where my parents came from. The exception to this is my cousin Duncan, who is living and teaching English in Japan. My father was an only child, but my mother is the oldest of thirteen, which means that I have about a million aunts, uncles and cousins in the UK, none of whom I've ever met! I don't even know the names of any of these cousins, or most of the aunts and uncles. Two of my aunts, Jenny and Margaret, moved to New Zealand after my mother, so I know them.
As you probably know if you've looked around this website, I'm very interested in photography, and this interest is tied in closely with my other interests - travel, airshows and aircraft museums, and wildlife in its various forms, including birds, insects, reptiles, mammals, amphibians and the underwater world.
