Artemis?

Raised on a farm in rural Australia, I spent most of my formative school years yabbying in irrigation channels, herding dairy cattle with kelpies and challenging my brothers to intrepid BMX races through the bush.

Following five fervently focused years at boarding school, I packed my bags and set off for the big smoke on a higher-education escapade. Somewhere between meeting my fervid commitments to minimum wage jobs and a competitive social calendar, I managed to bag a couple of degrees (B.Sc and Grad. Dip. Ed) before picking up sticks and moving half way across the world to live in the U.K. and then prairie-land Western Canada.

Fifteen years or so later, and when I am not chasing my little ankle biters up gum trees, I tend to be found plowing up marginal land to create food paradises or volunteering for various school, charity and community organisations.
