Hi.

I thought I should probably introduce myself!

I’m a postgraduate student at University and am studying geography. I started off studying political science (mostly Middle Eastern) and history, but after a year of that decided Geography was the path I wanted to go down. Most of my undergrad studies revolved around physical geography, resource management, a sprinkling of human geography, and a couple of geography and health papers. As a postgrad I’ve been doing a lot of research into transportation and health, mostly using GIS (Using computers to analyse and model geographic phenomena). My main interest is in transport, specifically alternative transport, but I am also interested in health research, and sustainable development.

I currently work part time for the Department of Conservation (The national organisation responsible for the environment here) and getting an insight into how a government conservation organisation works.

When I’m not working in some form, I usually try and get into the hills, and do as much tramping (hiking) and mountain biking as possible. Other than that I try and practice what I study by leading the most sustainable lifestyle that I can. It’s not always perfect, but if you actually believe in sustainability then it’s worth a go at least.

So yeah…G’day! :)

Welcome. It's nice to have you.

When you head to the hills, do you see any of those mountain turkeys or red deer? I'd love to make it over their for some hunting one day.

Yes they do. I work with one, and he sounds a lot like an Australian.

There is a big market for US hunters over here. Good fishing as well. Anything from game fish through to cod.

I think about 60% of the south island is conservation land where you can hunt?

Hope you guys can make it out to NZ one day.

I'd love to visit NZ before I die... I wouldn't even want to hunt, but I'd sure like to go diving and fishing... :D

We do indeed. And Salmon.

Although not if the developers and farmers have their way anytime soon. :D
