Hi i'm Shane
I was born in New Zealand and left there when i was 22 to see the world. I spent some time in Australia and then on to the UK for a couple of years. While i was there i had to go to Dublin and saw the grafetti in Windmill Lane, fantastic. I also met a girl in the UK and moved back to Australia. Got married and now have 2 boys. I built my house as an owner builder, which was great fun but hard work. I decided to quit my job as a warehouse manager and go back to University to study Environmental Science. I work full time watering indoor plants as well.
"I was there the food was shite, I was vegetarian, full blown, verging on the vegan and so it was a difficult time. But underneath all the cultural shock I enjoyed it. So I was happy to go back".

did you know
The song 'Scarlet' was inspired by a thought in Bono's mind: "does God need salesmen?". The band was also in a minimalist mood that day.
