I am an Australian-born Medical Practitioner & former University Professor. Originally from Melbourne, Victoria; then 4 years in Sydney, NSW - then 4 years working in Pacific Islands, now back in Australia living/working in rural Victoria ... But soon heading to any/all of: Japan, Canada, New Zealand. My chosen vocation is/was Medical Education. In particular, teaching the fundamental principles of clinical (bedside) diagnosis and the essential skills required of a competent ‘first-port-of-call' ED physician/surgeon. Now I am mostly into just being a remote & rural medical practitioner. On life apart from medicine, I agree with Judy Garland (or was it Rose Tremain?) who quipped: "life is not a dress rehearsal" ... and so passionately embrace the concept of living each day to the full ! I'm into comedy, love, physical fitness, good food and playing percussion for the Fiji Funk Bros' (Jazz/Afro-Cuban/Calypso) and recording live music ... in any order or combination ... but can veg out, on the couch, in a pair of Ugg boots, scooping at a tub of Häagen-Dazs ice-cream, with the best of em! Admittedly, I am difficult to live and/or work with (hence still single). A perfectionist, competitive, impatient, intolerant (of mediocrity and cowardice). Gentle, kind and protective by nature, but also teasing and provocative ... Can be aggressive and combative when challenged or confronted by liars, cheats, bigots, bullies and the like ... Strong points: a creative, lateral thinker, ethical, empathic, loyal and honest. Weak points: in addition to being impatient and impulsive, I have a short fuse dealing with male bullies. I'm uncomfortable dealing socially with large groups of people ... A founding member of 'eBay anonymous' (for those addicted to binge buying of vintage toys and classic musical instruments !!) I am reclusive, rarely answer my phone, mildly eccentric and live alone with my pet dogs: 'Kevin' and 'Ruby' (Great Dane/Mastiff/Rhodesian Ridge-back crosses) who I love dearly. I'm into: Animal Welfare; Human Rights; Sarah Vaughan; Shirley Bassey; Eni Kumar and music played by real musicians: Jazz fusion, Soul/Motown/Stax, Ennio Morricone; Nino Rota; Reggae, Vude; Humour; Irony; Sarcasm; Satire; Dave Chappelle; Richard Pryor; Peter Cook and Dudley Moore; Robin Williams; Classic Movies; Arthouse and Cult Movies; Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers; South Pacific Islands; Organic Vegetables; Japanese, Korean and Thai Cuisines; Fijian Kokoda; French and Tasmanian Champagne; Sports: Snow Skiing, Swimming, Jogging, Cycling, Golf; Double Malt Milkshakes with extra ice-cream. ;-) I particularly love animals, ALL animals, both domestic & wild, and am an avid (but not ya tree-huggin') conservationist. I do not accept violence of any kind (especially if directed towards women, children or animals) and abhor any violation of personal and civil rights. I don't trust politicians or lawyers. I believe that unsanctioned pre-emptive war is absolutely wrong. The place to resolve international conflicts is the UN security council. With all its shortcomings, it is currently the only civilized option and the place for dictators and despotic tyrants is in the dock of the World Court - The Hague. Revenge; retribution; assassinations; terrorism and the unilateral invasions of any country have no moral or ethical validity. Once all the serious topics are out of the way ... I am really about having fun, sharing a laugh and enjoying listening too, and playing, live music ...
