Leigh lives in Melbourne Australia with his beautiful wife Sunshine, their daughters Eve and Maya, and their dog Lego. Leigh enjoys outdoor recreation with a passion for back country telemark skiing, and fond memories of rock climbing and cycle touring. He also enjoys tinkering with permaculture design and ideas for post industrial living.

Leigh's professional interest is in educational development, focused on open and networked learning and research, using social media and community engagement. Leigh currently works with the The Faculty of Health Sciences, at La Trobe University.

Sunshine wants Leigh to find a small block of land by a river, free them from wage slavery, and go back to being an artist, growing vegies, running goats, and raising a baby - Leigh whole heartedly agrees. In the meantime, slave on.
