On a normal day I'm woken up by my son Harry (7), when he crawls into bed beside us, asking for Mummy's iPad so he can watch strange YouTube videos of elevator tours, planes, train level crossings, dyeing eggs, or people unwrapping Kinder Eggs and reviewing the toys inside. Yes - they do exist.

I’m a simple guy with simple pleasures... Growing vegetables, going for long drives, staying up late watching TV with the sound turned down. I love to cook - with a glass of wine in one hand, usually a Pinot Noir or Scotch and Coke.

After travelling around the world and living in the UK, we’ve decided Tasmania is an amazing place to live - and we're here to stay!

But the thing I enjoy most in my life is talking to and playing with my son. Watching him learn and grow and form his own amazing personality is just the greatest joy and privilege in life.

I'm also hugely in awe of my wife's achievements as a writer. Google 'My Mad Fat Diary' by Rae Earl and you'll see why.
