So, what does the world want to know about me? I once wanted to be a photographer, but just got too caught up in the mad rush of living to give it the time. Or maybe I just lacked the confidence in my work to ever show it until now. I have two day jobs – archaeology and writing. One pays, the other does too, but not enough – I’m still working on the big one. In my life I’ve done lots of things, most of them inadvisable, but it’s been fun so far and it aint over yet. My passion is the sea and ships. I’ve just taken up diving again after many years and I’ve bought a camera to snap the fishes – watch this space. I regularly feel the need to travel; so many places, so little time and the Frequent Flyer points go nowhere. I love wilderness and being alone, but I also thrive on meeting someone new. Enjoy films, theatre, books, music (genre depends on my mood, but rarely opera). Not at all religious, but can be awed by nature.

What a great experience this has been. Just a day into being part of this and I’ve had so much support. What a great bunch of people you are and so much creative talent. Thanks for all your comments and please don’t hang back from constructive criticism.
