I am originally from the UK, but now live in Australia. I have lived all over the East of Australia and currently live in Canberra.
Currently work in OHS and Risk Management areas. I love the environment and so I run a diesel car which only uses 4.6 litres/100km (60 mpg imperial) and captures all the carbon emmissions. It is actually cleaner emmissions than a natural gas car!
My hobbies include fiddling around with PC's (which I have done for many years), Star Trek (yep I'm a trekkie and got married in "First Contact" uniform and wrote our own star trek vows). I also have a bad habit - aviation. I like to fly choppers, fixed wing and ultralites as money allows...
