Reflecting my positive outlook on life, I'm told that I smile a lot. Despite what's on the news, there are many good things to be enjoyed - including hosting guests with my partner and co-host Stephanie. I'm interested in many things and, having once been a teacher, believe in the idea and benefits of life-long learning. I completed a Master of Science degree only a few years ago to fulfill a life time ambition. Now I do some public speaking and visit schools to talk to students about astronomy, and show them views through telescopes. In addition to keeping on studying I enjoy the food and wine available in this part of Australia and visit some of our magnificent wine producing regions very frequently. I'm a migrant to Australia (from England) and rate Adelaide as one of the best spots in the world. If you are not in Australia and reading this - come and visit!
