I am a retired teacher of mathematics and Sheridan my wife has retired from being a Midwife and lactation Consultant. We have 3 adult children and 4 adorable grandchildren. Both of us are keen travellers and in 1996 our whole family spent a year in Ontario, Canada on a teacher exchange. In 2004 as a couple we completed another year long teacher exchange to a rural township in Cornwall, England. We also took the opportunity to live in Dubai for 14 months to help our daughter and son-in-law on their journey into parenthood. I have been a Rotarian for 4 years and love to go lake or ocean fishing with friends. We both enjoy the outdoors and when able tramp (hike) in our native bush or national parks. Sheridan enjoys Zumba classes.
