I am Australian originally from Melbourne, Victoria; but have worked in Sydney, NSW and in the Pacific Islands, but now back in Australia living/working in rural Victoria ... Soon heading to either Japan or New Zealand ... 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 (Jazz/Afro-Cuban/Calypso) and recording live music ... in any order or combination ...

Dress Style:

Comfortable in a tuxedo, Fijian Sulu or Japanese Hakama - depending on the circumstances ...

Humor:

Quirky, easy, maybe a litty naughty or mischievous, but readily able to laugh at myself ... I love to laugh, preferably shared with other people!!

Hobbies & Interests:

I'm into exercise then good food & good music ... or practicing Latin-Afro-Caribbean percussion (conga/tumba/djembe drums) & Jazz bass guitar - wistfully, hoping to join a band sometime! I'm no virtuoso 'creative' musical talent ... and never will be ... but have reasonable pitch & timing, can hold a beat & 'feel' soul/jazz/funk/fusion rhythms ... Ahem, I'm not giving up my day job or holding my breath waiting for a recording contract tho ! ;-)

Travelled:

I've been many times to South Pacific Islands ... Working in the Colonial War Memorial Hospital in Suva ... But have always wished to travel, and one day live and work, in Japan !

Cultural Adaption:

I'm very conscious of cultural diversity and sensitive to the wonderful cultures around the world ... especially admiring the fabulolus diverse Japanese Culture ...

Romance:

Out wandering around Darlinghurst, Sydney checking out some of the finest restaurants and cafes in the southern hemisphere! ;-)

Or, curled up on da sofa watching 'Ornen' The Eagle - A Crime Odyssey (Danish) on widescreen digital TV ...

Or, back out on the town again shopping for clothes, searching for old record albums, antiques etc ...

Personality:

My character is very stable, but my outward personality is variable depending on the company ... I can be shy and a bit withdrawn in unfamilar environments, or warm and friendly if I am with friends or family and outrageously outgoing in front of a lecture theatre full of medical students !!! ;-)

My Perfect Match is:

Someone, like me, who is bright, friendly, warm, inquisitive and has a mischievous, quirky sense of humour !! And, unlike me ... feminine ! ;-)
