I was born in Levin, New Zealand in 1945. Right now I live in Rotorua, New Zealand's thermal wonderland of volcanoes, geysers, lakes and mountains.
For most of my life I have worked as a musician, over fifty five years, playing classical and jazz standards. I also have a family of two children and three grandchildren. My hobbies are walking, swimming, gardening, playing the piano, reading.
