My background is in astronomy and physics and my day job is in this field.

My interest in genealogy started at an early age and has grown over the years. I joined the Society of Australian Genealogists (SAG) in 2000, the SAG Board in 2015 and serve on the Education committee. I am a regular presenter at SAG, a member of the TMG and DNA groups and coordinator of the Beginners DNA group. I am also a member of Botany Bay Family History Society.
