I am an Australian living in Dunedin, New Zealand.

Interests include choral singing, writing, rowing, snorkeling, chess, sustainability, the expanding earth hypothesis (yes, I know it is debunked, but the debunking is scientifically so full of holes you could shoot a SR-71 through it) and being an intellectual badass. I have been a member of AICSA since 1992, and attended every InterVarsity Choral Festival from 1993 to 2007 inclusive.

I've been known to compose a bit of music here and there, mainly SATB a cappella choral music and broadway / musicals. Also mostly under a rather well-known pseudonym to protect the innocent (me).

Qualifications include degrees in Politics and English (Flinders University), and postgraduate work in Software Engineering (RMIT University). I'm a professional writer by trade, and chief cook and bottle washer 24/7.

I love dark chocolate, organic food and country music, and am addicted to strawberries and mangoes. Buy me a beer or two and I'm your friend for life.

You'll find me around Wikipedia fixing a fair number of typos and grammatical nasties, as well as correcting errors on topics of interest to me. Pages I follow are varied, and I get annoyed at vandalism.
