The most important thing first...I have been married for nearly thirty years to my beautiful wife Wendy, and we have three fabulous children - Daniel, Matthew and Charlotte.
I have had a varied career in project management, town planning, aid work in places such as China, Thailand and Vietnam, and mental health.
I enjoy adventure stuff. I have driven a V8 around a race circuit, flown a plane (ably assisted by the instructor who had his hands hovering over his controls), sky dived and flown in a balloon. Wendy and I love travel - 4 weeks in Italy and Greece being the highlight - and will be going to Langkawi for our thirtieth wedding anniversary in 2016.
I am passionate about health and fitness. I have trained in Tae Kwon Do for 35 years reaching 2nd dan black belt level. I am a qualified personal trainer and have developed training programs over the past 15 years.
I have had three books published in Australia and India (unfortunately I still need a daytime job) and have drafted five eBooks which are waiting in the wings to be uploaded to various platforms. My posts provide some clues to the content, with two books to be released specifically for the Indian and China market. I am currently developing a web site for this purpose.
China has been going through some major transformations over the past ten to twenty years, both economically and socially. The country is now adapting many of the characteristics of the western world. The middle class now numbers around 300 million people. Overseas work and travel is now common and women are playing a greater economic role in both society and in personal relationships.
The behavioural characteristics of a dog’s life can parallel with our own lives. They can provide a very positive guide for us to use in both our own personal development as well as within our personal relationships. Characteristics discussed in this book include trust, loyalty, living in the present, and using the five senses.
There have been some major transformations recently in Indian society.
This book was originally written for readers in the west as the issues and points I am making relate to a 'western style' relationship. However with the change happening in India I believe I can also offer the Indian people some ideas that they may be able to use in their own relationship.
