About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Technical Bus. Analyst/Excel VBA expert
Location Melbourne, Australia
Introduction I work full-time in IT, am a committee member of Melbourne Cinémathèque and average 4+ films a week on the big screen. I like all kinds, but am particularly partial to those that challenge, social realism and foreign language films, esp. French. I'm learning French and hope to live and work there one day.
