About Michael Brown

In Queensland, Australia, July 2002

I am in my 24th year as a public school teacher. Prior to that I worked in the parts department of an auto dealer, drove school bus, tended bar, and did park maintenance work.

My wife and I have a six year old adopted son. We both believe that that he is OUR son. When I say that, I mean that people often diminish the familial relationship when a child is not related biologically. We think that is a very narrow view.

I am very interested in current world, regional, and local events. I am a naturalist, photographer, and writer. Birds are of particular interest to me because my father was an avid bird-watcher.
