Hobbies

Skiing
When I can. I'm a bit of a ski bum, I'll stay off mountain in a tent so I can afford more time on the slopes. Downhill, a bit of off-piste. Ask me about my latest injury.
Gaming
Computers not casinos. Mostly real time strategy like StarCraft and Rise of Nations. Just for fun though, you won't find me in any tournaments any time soon.
Arduino
Tinkering with hardware controllers is a bit of fun. It can be useful too. Right now I'm building a little display that will help me remember to put the bins out. It'll even let me know if its the night I need to put out the recycling or green waste. I started with this hobby before I trained as a software engineer. So I knew a bit of C++ before going pro. Right now I'm training AI how to help others program Arduino and ESP controllers too.
Gardening
When I have the time, and a garden. Renting isn't always compatible with our hobbies.

Gardening, with the proper supervision
Brewing
I make a mean hazy IPA, I am working on a tropical pale ale and have plans for an acorn beer this autumn.
Hiking
I have hiked the Kumano Kodō through the Kii Peninsula in Japan, the Overland Track in Tasmania, and a lot of other trails around Victoria and New South Wales.

Surfing
I used to surf, badly.
I have a short board to sell if anyone's interested.
