About

After living in Sydney (Australia) for 5 years (I’m originally from Canberra), I threw it all in and moved to the lesser-known city of Fukuoka, Japan.   While I teach English at elementary schools locally, online I review headphones and audio products on my Youtube channel. I recently retired as an administrator for Head-fi.org, the world’s largest community dedicated to headphone-related hi-fi. Previous to that, I was an administrator for the now deceased MacTalk Australia (now superseded by members into Appletalk Australia). I’ve been an Apple computer user since my primary school installed Apple IIs back in the 1980s and have worked in companies from small Apple resellers to billion dollar retailers, as well as for myself.  My present interests also include Aikido, which I began back in high school and now practice almost daily, and gnostic spirituality — knowing rather than believing. I tend to look at things in a multi-dimensional way rather than view them as black or white as most people tend to.

The late S.A. Barnett is my father. I highly recommend his book, linked in the sidebar, if you have an interest in science.
