Darren's been tagged and, in turn, has passed it on to me. When I was chatting a couple of weeks ago with my new colleague Michael Kordahi, he said that he had a completely different impression of me reading my blog from what he got by talking to me, so here are 5 things you may not know about me.
- My degrees are in Civil Engineering, and I fell into the computer business almost by mistake.
- My native language is Visual FoxPro (in fact, originally, FoxBase 1.0)
- I've been playing hockey, on and off, since I was 4. Most recently (for the last 15 years or so) with the UNSW Hockey Club.
- I spent 10 years in the Army Reserve, starting as an Officer Cadet in the Uni of NSW Regiment and ending up as the Squadron Recon Officer in a Field Engineer Squadron. Along the way I got to play with some really big toys, build some fun things and blow stuff up.
- I play the trombone (pretty badly), and enjoy nothing more than playing duets with my son.
