I am something of a geek (well a registry one at least) and work for a wonderfully clever company, Foster Moore – The Registry People. For the 26 years before that I worked for the New Zealand Companies Office doing quite a bit with computers and less with bits of paper as the years went on.

My blogging is sporadic like my attempts at fitness and manners.
I have the very good fortune to live in Sumner, Christchurch, Aotearoa~New Zealand. I am married and have three delightful daughters.
I spend a fair bit of time pottering around on the web and due to the nature of my work a fair amount of my life in queues at airports…
I am the happy owner (well custodian really) of a 1985 ex Army V8 Series III Land Rover 109. It is at all times a source of joy and frustration. It is the best therapy a person can have. This flickr album is devoted to the magnificent machine.
