About me

Industry Non-Profit
Occupation Retired Journalist
Location Woy Woy, Central Coast NSW, Australia
Introduction White beard, head turning white. Normally a genial fellow, I worry about threats to tolerance, diversity and social equity. Ratty journalism makes me really grumpy. Now 71, I retired six years ago after a working lifetime as a city newspaper journalist, and live quietly with my wife Merry in a home full of memories, the place where we brought up four children on the New South Wales Central Coast.
Interests Australian history and culture, journalism, newspapers and the internet, books, lawn bowls, motor-cycling, railways, good beer and robust red wine, family and friends.
