My work requires me to be out in the bush fairly often and one of my favourite parts of being out there is looking up at night and seeing the stars in all their glory, away from the city lights. It’s really awful that so many of us are completely divorced from the fantastic spectacle of the sky at night.
I’ve always been interested in learning more about it, the constellations, the different types of stars and when to look for the planets, comets and meteor storms. When I saw a gay astronomy group was being formed, I thought it was a great opportunity to pursue this curiosity in a friendly, relaxed setting.
My other interests are all other aspects of the natural world, I’m a zoologist by profession, but I also bushwalk and birdwatch for fun. When I’m not doing that, I love art, theatre, literature (I usually only read dead authors, but I make an exception for Peter Carey) fine music, especially opera and 80s goth.

I love science and technology and as a result I am Star Gayzers web master and resident technology geek. You'll generally find me at our regular monthly meetings running the technology that brings you the presentations from our guest speakers.
I've been interested in astronomy since watching and photographing Halley's Comet in 1986. Since those times, I have combined my interests of photography and astronomy.

Since I was a kid, I have always enjoyed gazing at the stars, and find it so relaxing just sitting back and looking at our night sky. I remember the news about NASA as a kid, and was always fascinated about what was beyond our own home planet and knew that I wanted to know more. It always made me wonder, ‘What don’t we know, and how much we will find out? Is there life out there?’
I have always found this group friendly and so ready to share their knowledge and enthusiasm for astronomy and have fun along the way. It doesn’t matter how much you do or don’t know. I have made some really good friends either going to the regular monthly meetings and just going along on those night sky viewing events.
