I’ve done so many ‘About Me’ pages in my lifetime, and they’re all different, and the me I was then is never the me I am now.
Anyhoo. I’m in my mid-forties, I work in the not-for-profit and philanthropic sector and I live in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia with my long-time partner and our cat. I like knitting, reading, spending way too much time on Teh Internets and hanging out with good friends. I also like travel. I enjoy seeing patterns, Finding Out Stuff and then Telling People Stuff.
I want the world to be a better place. Sometimes I actively work towards this goal. Other times I persuade myself that I’m doing enough via my job.
I’ve been online since the early 90s, when I was finishing uni. Online communities – first in the person of Usenet news – drew me in. At various times in my life – online and off – I’ve become passionately interested in something and immersed myself in it for a time.
The current obsessive interests are knitting, genealogy, travel and history and trying to identify the unidentified. But as I always do, I’ll keep making myself up as I go along.
