I arrived in Aotearoa in 1961 from England, spending 10 years in Australia on the way. I was raised in the shadow of Mount Lofty in South Australia.

I gained an MSC and diploma of Statistics at Auckland University. My Phd degree from Nottingham University was in multi-dimensional smoothing. I have made a user-friendly program which I have extensively used in my 40 years of statistical consulting. It can handle repeated measures, spectral and questionaire data.
