Born in '73, I grew up in Melbourne, work in the radio industry and have been living and chasing in SE Qld since late 1998. My main storm-related passion is photographing lightning and getting as close as possible while staying safe. There's nothing quite like a ground strike less than 50 metres away!
I remember as kid being fascinated by storms and standing on the back patio on my own watching the lightning. It seems not much has changed, except that I now have a means of following and recording it.
