Born and raised in Australia but currently residing in Northern California with my 4 month old puppy, who is quite naughty but very entertaining! I don't collect anything except tattoos and signed first edition books, but I do enjoy travel and just about anything outdoors, as well as reading, writing and music.

Fitness has been my hobby for most of the last ten years, and I'm always looking to gain new knowledge in that area. Good health enables me to do all the rest of the outdoor stuff I enjoy, so I take it fairly seriously (probably one of the only things I do take seriously!). Tennis is my other passion - I don't get to play as much as I used to, but I still watch as much on TV as I can!

Always on the lookout for a new adventure, I'm about to try my hand at internet affiliate marketing!
