What a great idea. Especially seeing as I'm new to the site.
My name is Louise and I'm nearly 33 (on the 25th of this month). My partner Lee is 30 and we live in a small country town in Australia called Yass. Yass is not far from Canberra, the capital city of Australia.
I was born in Canberra and grew up there and bought a house in Yass back in 1993.
Lee and I both work in Canberra, in the Information Technology industry. I am a software testing manager and he's currently working as a system engineer.
Lee is originally from Brisbane and we met online nearly 2 years ago now. We met in person in December 2000 and have been together ever since then. He moved here from Brisbane after we met.
I spent most of my life working for an IT area within a government department until I resigned a few years ago. I spent a while working in contract IT positions until starting a permanent job with a great company in October 2001 as their software testing manager.
Lee has spent a lot of time in USA. He studied at MIT and the University of Washington and has a doctorate in planetary sciences. Lee has worked with places like NASA and Lockheed Martin. Here in Australia though there isn't a lot of work in his field, so at the moment he's working in IT which has always been another of his interests.
Our plans for the future are still a little uncertain but will most likely include going back over to the USA at some stage (I've never been there myself so that will be great). Later on we'd like to settle in the north of Australia, where Lee is originally from.
We have no kids, unless you count our very spoiled russian blue kitten Orion...lol
Orion is 9 months old now and soon he will be joined by a russian black kitten.
My interests are drag racing (yes I do race myself), astronomy, astrology, volleyball, cats, reading (in particular Stephen King, Dean Koontz and JRR Tolkien), wicca, tarot, computers, etc.
Lee's interests are astrophysics, space exploration, electronics, aerospace, chess, climbing, flying, astronomy, volleyball, computers, etc.
We also both enjoy going out to movies and dinner together.
Well I guess that's enough rambling on...lol
