I'm Steve Pogonowski, a former journalist/media relations contractor turned marine biology student. I currently live in the small coastal town (some call it a city: population 32,000) of Warrnambool, Victoria, Australia. I'm making a return to blogging after starting first year of a Bachelor of Environmental Science (Marine Biology) at Deakin University in Warrnambool.
