My name is Jom.
An old nick-name was “Jom Atom Bomb.”
That's my lovely wife Neuda and me above, holidaying in Brazil.
I'm forty something, bit of an artiste extraordinaire,
completely unemployable: fortunately I have found my calling as a photographer.
I love art. Kenneth Clark (doddery English art historian) is my hero.
My favourite artist is is Gian Lorenzo Bernini, sculptor and architect (1598-1680.)
I am also a motorcycle nutcase, I love taking my bike to the track.
My top speed record for Eastern Creek is 273 km/h on a Yamaha R1.
I adore the sensation of leaning the bike into a corner at 200 km/h
dragging my knee sliders along the racetrack.
The bike slides and blips and the adrenaline rush is out of this world.
I live for music, including Radiohead, 70's rock i.e.
Led Zeppelin, Roxy, Bowie; Tech House, hard-tripping Breakbeat,
Nick Cave, Joan Baez, Chopin and ... pretty much everything!
I am unique among Australians in that I am completely disinterested in spectator sport.
Noam Chomsky got it right when he said it's just "bread and circuses"
so people don't get politically active about the shenanigans of the
kleptocratic state and its bankster cronies.
