Hobbies & Sports


I have many interests and hope to share some QSO time with you.

Below I have listed a few things I love doing besides radio.




From a very early age I learnt to love the ocean. I lived near Narrabeen beach on the northern suburbs of Sydney and enjoyed being able to surf with my friends before school, after school and weekends.

My favorite break is Golf Course Reef Mollymook NSW Australia.

Veggie Garden

I love growing my own veggies, organic style.

I create all my own compost from using seaweed, lawn cuttings, leave litter, kitchen scraps and all my green waste.

Kingdom of Fungi

Many years ago I joined the Sydney Fungal Studies Group and began enjoying the amazing Kingdom of Fungi.

I discovered many interesting facts about fungi and began to photograph and study fungi in my area. The world would be a very different place if fungi didn't exist and the life cycle of fungi play a key role in bushland ecology.

Without fungi life on earth as we know it would cease to exist.

Fungi are not plants & obtain nutrients in different ways. Some plants have a direct association with fungi and without this Mycorrhizal relationship the plants wouldn't exist.

Most people get confused when they speak about edible mushrooms verses poisonous toadstools. The usage of these two terms suggests that all edible fungi are called a mushroom and a fungus that is poisonous is called a toadstool. This is not the case and only when you study mycology do you begin to understand how difficult it is to know whether a fungi is in fact edible and of any true value as a nutritional meal.
