I am a father, engineer and member of the local community of Newcastle NSW Australia. I was born on March 1st 1986 in Zimbabwe where I was raised until I left for university in South Africa in 2006.
Now living in Australia I work full time as an engineer supporting the coal mines of New South Wales. I live on the shores of Lake MacQuarie and enjoy the opportunity this place provides for walking, swimming and exploring.
Writing is a new thing for me, or is being newly revived. I recently found a letter written by my 12 year old self to this future me.
I hope to write about my childhood and upbringing, and the way I view the world because of it. I hope that my writing will give my children an insight into what my life has been like and empower others with a new way of looking at the world.
We all see the world differently. An insight into what I see when I look at a pile of old and new Apple computers.
