I am from a very early family in the region and Gt Gt Gt Grandfather was a carrier bringing goods to the few squatters in the region prior to the discovery of gold.
From a very early age I had a passion for history and a very enquiring mind not easily fulfilled even after reading countless volumes. I attended university and became a materials scientist / industrial chemist before becoming a museum officer and now, presently, manager of the Bendigo Joss House Temple.
A passionate researcher and collector, I am currently researching my own family tree as well as the chemist profession here in Victoria from the 1840's onwards. I co-present a radio program weekly on 106.7 Phoenix FM dedicated to histroical matters and oral histories pertaining to this region which has been going for nearly five years.
