Bio: Raised in a small town in the centre of New Zealand's North Island. Left home at age 16 to pursue a degree in Electrical Engineering, initially at Victoria University of Wellington and then at the University of Canterbury. Worked as a telecommunications engineer until 1993, then resigned and undertook a Master's degree at Colorado Christian University in Denver. On my return to New Zealand, I entered the field of tertiary lecturing, first at two of Auckland's polytechnic institutes and then at the University of Auckland's Business School and latterly at a small institution in Greymouth, on the West Coast of New Zealand's South Island. During my Auckland years, I also took undergraduate papers in philosophy and classical Greek, taking prizes in both those fields, plus postgraduate papers in the area of research methods. Since becoming self-consciously a Christian in my childhood, I have taken a keen interest in theology and the role of the Christian church in the world, and that interest is the motivation for one of my blogs, tjm2014.wordpress.com, while my interest in computers and programming is reflected in my other blog, trevsdev.blogspot.com. I retired from full-time employment in December 2013, and that has given me time to return to my interests and blog about them.
