City: Central Coast

Retired from a career which took many paths and included many cities around the world. Singing principle roles in New York and Mexico, Alderman with Sydney City Council and environmental work at a University in Sydney. Now settled in Kariong on the Central Coast and hope to continue my work at the local radio station as a programmer and announcer and theatre critic. Music has always been my passion and hobby.
