I was born in Ashburton, New Zealand, and was educated as an political economist at Canterbury University in Christchurch, New Zealand. I worked in Wellington and Auckland before leaving to live in Melbourne, Australia.
I worked on the trams for several years whilst I studied photography at the Photographic Studies College in City Rd, Southbank.
I had a studio and darkroom in Adelaide, South Australia and studied visual art and philosophy at Flinders University of South Australia, eventually gaining a PhD in philosophy. After working as an academic I became a policy wonk in Canberra for several years.
Now I am a blogger and photographer. I’ve given up the darkroom because of the effect of chemicals and I struggle with the Indesign and Photoshop post-processing software.
I currently live in Victor Harbor with Suzanne and three standard poodles called Ari, Maleko and Kayla..
