Fast Facts

Random Fact #1: Started a short-lived blog in 2017 called Unsung Science writing stories of little known discoveries in science and medicine. It gained traction in a short space of time. Unfortunately, it’s now forced into retirement due to severe time constraints. If you were a follower of Unsung Science and want to see it online again, click on contact

Random Fact #2: Started and completed an online mobile coding app class during the 2016 Christmas holidays. Created a mobile app for the first time ever. It took the mystery out of creating apps.

Random Fact #3: Took a crash course in data science a few years ago.


Not everything I have written, reported or produced for radio, television or print is available online. In the early days of the Internet in New Zealand from the late 1998 onwards, media organisations only published in a limited fashion online. And not everything I’ve written online is available online.

Much of this website acts as a collection point that allows me to curate content, mostly quotes, from some of the world’s original thinkers and minds on topics such as change, creativity, wisdom and the environment.
