My former career in policing and private investigation are history now and probably irrelevant because the world has changed so much since my policing days.
However, There is much truth in the old saying,"Once a cop, always a cop!"
For those who might be remotely interested in what makes me tick, I am a former New Zealand Police Sergeant and later, an Inspector in The Australian Protective Service, a division of the Federal Police tasked with providing counter terrorist response and diplomatic and consular protection. I have also run various business ventures with varying degrees of success. These days I am motivated by the desire to do something about climate change and after creating an educational website Upthem.org where anyone can ask questions, provide feedback or participate in a forum on anything remotely connected with climate change, I pulled the site down due to sabotage by pornographic idiots. I now support various environmental causes such as Greenpeace and Get Up and spread the word through my books.
I'm a proud grandfather of nine, who is immensely concern for the planet’s future and the world my innocent and beautiful grandchildren will inherit from a greedy, hedonistic and consumer mad world which by and large cares little for our ailing and fragile planet.
These days I spend much of my time working for the men's shed movement and and the founder and past president of the Joondaulp Men's Shed Inc., a registered health promotion charity. My current project is ensuring the ongoing success of the Man O'War Men's shed, Carramar, Western Australia.
Before I leave this world I want to feel I've done everything I can to aid in the fight against what I call, "the planetary cancer of consumerism." (Others call it global warming).
