My Occupation Air Force Pilot and Aviation Safety Officer
My Bio 20 years in the Australian Navy, 4 years flying offshore and rescue choppers, then 11 years in the Australian Air Force. The latter mostly flying the venerable and mighty P-3 'Orion'. I've used too many of my 9 lives and have dome more in this life than I had any right to expect...with much more to come! Did I mention I'm an identical twin and felt it when my brother cut off his finger? What a stupid thing to do!

I love life, people, sport, red wine, travel, doggies and cats...and my crazy South American wife, Griselda! She keeps me young and (in)sane...

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
My amazing spoodle dog Barley!
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
Pink Floyd (well I am a Baby Boomer!), Robbie Williams, Creed, Stevie Wright ('Evie' parts 1,2 & 3), Kings of Leon and Adele.
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
'The Big Show' by French WWII pilot Pierre Clostermann. If you have any interest in aviation this will have you on the edge of your seat. Pierre was a Spitfire then Tempest pilot with the RAF and his descriptions of his experiences are graphic, moving and believable. So all you plane-spotters out there - do yourself a favour...
