I was born at the Mater Hospital in North Sydney, grew up at North Rocks, NSW, where I attended North Rocks Public School (1953-59) and Macquarie Boys High (1960-64). I received a NSW Dept of Agriculture traineeship and studied agriculture at Sydney University (1965-68), awarded B.Sc.Agr. (Hons) in 1969. I worked at the Biological and Chemical Research Institute, Rydalmere (1969-71) before studying at the University of Wisconsin-Madison under Dr D.P. Maxwell, where I received the MS (1974) and PhD (1975) for studies on fungal spore germination. I met my wife Patricia there and we were married in 1973. I returned to Australia in 1975, starting work at the Wagga Wagga Agricultural Institute in 1976 till my retirement in 2007. My main work was on the epidemiology of field crop diseases and loss assessment. Our daughter Elena was born in 1975 and son Aaron in 1978.
