About Me

Hello Contact Details

Welcome to my website.  I am a 28 year old Kiwi with a heathy (some would say unhealthy) interest in politics and writing.

Living and travelling overseas from September 2002 to Decemeber 2003 reawakened my strong interest in history and how it impacts on current events.  In the 'Travel' section of the site there are accounts of some of my adventures.
