After kicking CANCER's butt as a teenager, I developed an ability to write poetry. I see this as though God has realised I have had a pretty hard time, 'Now see what you can do with this!' Often sarcastic,sometimes sentimental,more often than not light hearted,I find it the best way to get out what I want to say. Encouraged to write a kids book 'The Adventures of Wally The Sausage Dog Crossed With


Background Information

I see my greatest achievement as overcoming cancer considering the odds of survival were very much against me. Although I struggled, I completed a Carpentry trade course, have worked as a bar tender but now a teachers aide. It is hard to describe the feeling of seeing a student shine when I have been of assistance.Honoured to carry the Olympic Torch in the lead up to the 2000 Sydney Olympics, all I can ask of myself these days is to (Quoting Alana Arnot) Be the best I can be.

Birth Place

Accomplishments

Carpenter / joiner, bar tender, teachers aide and generally an all roung good 'Aussie Bloke'
