I love Judge Dread comics. I have some original artwork from the comics on my wall at home.

I collect old sci-fi posters. Many or which are framed and around the house. I also have a large Blade Runner collection of old props and memorabilia (which had been loaded out to The Roxy Cinema in Miramar a few times).


I’ve travelled to India 3 times. There’s much to love and learn about that country.

I think my favourite places in New Zealand would be the Golden Bay region, and Great Barrier Island
