"After having a little bit to do with Chris Tennant whilst involved in Capital Works projects for
the Department of Health, I was working with Harley Wright for a few years

Keith, you have spurred me to action, as I have had a very different story, and can still say "I
have had a great life so far, enjoy fishing and travelling."
I have worked for four computer companies, IBM (twice), Itel, Prime (twice, in Aus and USA)
and my own (for the last 15 years). It has morphed from a software applications company to a
networking company, to a web-based service listing over 3,000 aircraft for sale
(www.ASO.com), and has the distinction of being a pure dot com that is consistently profitable.
Somewhere in between, I started and sold a Yacht Brokerage business.
I travelled 55,000Km through Africa and Europe by car in 1972/73, and spent 6 months in
Austria, living in a restaurant on a ski slope.
I have been married twice, first to a tall blond Dutch girl and now to a beautiful black girl from
Barbados. I left Sydney on the day we won the America's Cup in 1983, and have lived since
then in San Rafael (25Km North of San Francisco), travelling frequently to Sydney and
Barbados, and to Port Douglas.
A health problem stopped me skiing and competitively sailing in 1988, and I now enjoy fishing
for salmon, which we get around San Francisco, as well as any other large fish I can find."
