Born in 1962 in the town of Colac (Victoria, Australia) and now lives in Melbourne (Victoria), son of a nurse and a fibrous plaster, worked in analytical and research science (from EPA to CSIRO) for 25 years, then moved in occupational health and safety because safety paid more and he had desire to make the world a safer place one workplace at a time, and after another 20 years in safety (13 years as a state government safety inspector) is now a self-employed author and craftsperson.

Sports and martial arts figured predominantly in his life which included Freestyle wrestling (represented Australia), Archery (Longbow, Victorian State champion and competed at the nationals), Fencing (foil, epee and sabre at intervarsity competitions), and attaining a blue belt in Shudokan Aikido.

A living historian and re-enactor since joining the New Varangian Guard Inc. in 1984, then started Sven the Merchant (a business making and selling medieval goods mainly consisting of furniture, arrows and leatherwork) in 2004[1].

And now it’s passing on the legacy in the form of workshops and the ‘How to” books.
