Gerard Mack

Glasgow, Scotland
28 April 1940

I am a Scotsman living in Italy, a retired IT consultant and amateur woodworker. My wife Avril is Welsh and has degrees in Italian and French, my Daughter Ailsa (25) has just finished her Masters degree in Bio-medical Engineering at Pavia university, obviously she is completely bilingual.

My interests include:
Woodworking, Etymology, Reading, Music, Art, Design, Religions, Opera, Photography, Technology, Physics, Archaeology, History, Mathematics, Trivia (I call it General Knowledge), Motor Racing (F1), Aviation.

My taste in music is fairly eclectic and includes:-
- Classic: Beethoven, Bach, Mozart
- Opera: Puccini, Verdi, Wagner. Rossini
- Country & Western: Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood (his wife),
Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris. Sarah MacLachlan, KD Lang
- Brass Bands (not military): Canadian Brass, Grimethorpe
- 60's Pop: Almost anything
- Choral: Morman TC, Red Army Choir
- Celtic: Enya, Chieftains
- Classic Guitar: John Williams, Julian Bream, Rodrigo, Barrios, Sor
- Accoustic Guitar: Django Rheinhart, Eric Clapton
- Flamenco: Gitano, Manitas Di Plata
- General: Roy Orbison, Zucchero, Meat Loaf, Annie Lennox, Queen

I have worked/lived in several places in the world viz. Scotland several years , London England several years, Canada 2 years, Holland 1 year, Nigeria 1 year USA 6 months, Italy more than 20 years on and off. I speak English very well and Italian very badly.

Most of my life has been spent in the IT sector as a consultant apart from nearly 2 years in pilot training in the Royal Canadian Air-force
