I have completed six placements with VISE, three in Queensland (near Clermont, Surat and Richmond) and three near Wilcannia in western NSW. I am a retired secondary Mathematics/Science teacher. I live in the power generating hub of Victoria, the Latrobe Valley in central Gippsland. I cycle regularly (mainly on a road bike), am a Director on the local community radio station Gippsland FM (104.7) and my favourite music artists are Jimmy Buffett, U2 and Australian country singer Fanny Lumsden, among many others. I play the guitar.
