Hi, welcome, howzit?

My name is Derrick and I live in Auckland, New Zealand.  I’m married to an incredible woman, Kerryn, and we have two children together, Jono and Natalie.

I work in IT.  Kind of.  I manage/work with/play with a great group of people who do cool things with computers to help other people do things faster/smarter/longer.  I do this for a Bank (I know, booooring).

My interests include technology, sport (Golf, Rugby, Fishing, Diving), cars (driving them, fixing them, looking at them), music (listening to it mostly, I own a guitar, but I’m not very good…) and gaming (not as much these days!).

I’m trying out this writing thing to see how it fits.  Hopefully well.  Who knows, time will tell…
