I have been married since 2000 and have two sons, the eldest born in 2001 and the youngest in 2003.

I love playing with my kids, coaching their various sports teams, cooking (but not cleaning!), playing guitar, doing magic tricks and have a passion for fly fishing.

I have travelled all over the world, having taken 3 years to travel Oceania, Asia, the Far East, the Middle East and Europe. I lived in Australia, Japan and Switzerland for extended periods.
