I am based in the Lockyer Valley, Queensland. I have two children (young adults), three grandchildren, an extensive family network and a few animals. I enjoy many aspects of life: music, cooking, gardening, riding, cars, architecture, learning new things and furthering my education, social gatherings and meeting new people, training my dog and of course, spending quality time with my family.
