Headline“faber est quisquae suae fortunae”
Semi-retired now, I run a boutique consultancy business in sales/marketing of high technology - services via the Internet, hardware, Internet, software, computers, telecommunications. Most of my projects these days are pro bono and community based. I also run an Airbnb apartment for mostly overseas guests called StudioYindi. Prior to all that I was an architect.
I now keep myself busy marketing Studio Yindi to overseas guests via Airbnb.
Passionate about sailing and messing around in boats generally. Nordic skiing is another special interest, though a knee problem forced me to miss the past 2 seasons.
I tend to be most comfortable with people who are open minded, mature, educated, good conversationalists, hold liberal outlooks and shares my interest in the arts, and physical, non-competitive outdoorsy things like sailing, downhill and nordic skiing, bushwalking, camping, backpacker style international travel, and walking around exotic foreign towns and cities. Massage is becoming more important too me as a way coping with the pressures of age. As has skinny dipping at Cobblers Beach, Middle Head!
I keep myself reasonably fit with sailing, walking and cycling. Most comfortable in smart casual active wear clothes, usually sourced from Kathmandu, Snowgum or Rohan. But occasionally my work requires me to dress formally for customer interactions.
Musically my tastes are very catholic: INXS, Crowded House, Van Morrison, celtic, gregorian chants, G&S, Elvis Costello, Peggy Lee, John Williamson, Ravel, George Melly, Red Gum, Gipsy Kings, Paul Simon, Spandau Ballet, Steel Eye Span, Carmena Burana.
