A personal site is hardly personal if there’s nothing about the person on it, so here you go.
My name is Rory Ewins. I was born and raised in Tasmania, and spent several years in Australia’s capital, Canberra. I’ve also lived in the US, New Zealand and England; nowadays my family and I live in Edinburgh. My graduate studies were on political theory and Pacific islands politics; I’ve also written a novel, drawn a bunch of cartoons, performed a bit of comedy, and made a lot of web pages.
For the full Freudian mind-probe, try these reminiscences:
Call Me Rory: On having an unusual name.
The Purge: The stupidest thing I did as a kid.
TV Kid: Watching television in the ’70s.
Trimming the Tree: On Christmas trees, hedges, and the local tip.
Of Mutton and Men: Where sheep are nervous.
Dover Bay: A piece from 1990, remembering Tasmania just before I left it.
The Fade: On leaving home.
Remains in the Sand: Earliest memories.
Home: Saying goodbye.
