I am an independent topographic researcher. Most of my edits are related to topographic matters. I am the proprietor of the Viewfinder Panoramas website where I make topographic data and panoramic maps freely available to all users.

I have used this page to present some interesting ancestral background. While most of the information on my mother's side can be sourced to numerous sites that document the peerages of the nations that make up the United Kingdom, I am grateful to my cousin Frances Ross for her research into the ancestors of my father. In particular, the above link documents the Italian ancestry, most of which is not reproduced here.

My father's mother, a skating champion and the daughter of a railway engineer, was a St. Kilda resident for three years.
