I was brought up in country Queensland, Australia - riding horses, milking goats and loving the bush, whilst attending a very small school. I started teaching music at the age of 14 whilst still attending High School, and have made that my life time career. Mixed with that I have also have commercial jobs and run businesses, but music has been the core. I have had my own bands, and some years ago, played for quite a few celebrities during their tours of Queensland. I have been a music examiner for over 20 years but have now retired from that position.
Writing stories and poetry has always been an interest, and I have had poetry published. I have a volume of poetry ready for publication in the near future.
I am also a Distinguished Toastmaster.
