Quick bio: I was born in New Zealand but I moved to Australia as a baby. As a kid, my Father was in a band called Fraternity and I shared a house with the singer, Bon Scott. Then the band moved to England and split up (Bon went on to AC/DC and a drunken death). Most of my childhood was in Hounslow in West London. THere I went to Alexandra Junior School and Hampton School. My late teen years and twenties were in Sydney, Australia. I had three years of High School at North Sydney Boys High. I have a BSc (Hons) from the University of NSW (CompSci) and a BSc from Macquarie University (Maths). I moved to Seattle, USA in 1996 and then moved to Southwest France in 2009.

I like riding bikes, talking a lot and thinking hard about why things happen the way they do. I have a soft spot for fixies, although the fashion fixie is just ludicrous. If you don’t know me this blog could be dull, dull, dull.

    my anti-fixie stance was to absolutely no avail apparently… ah well, have fun not working, try not to post more than 4 or 5 times per day… why do I feel like I am signing your year book?

    The fixie is still the most ridden bike. It just works. You know you really want one. 🙂

    Hi Brent,

    I just googled you name and having read your blogs I’m guessing that you are the same Brent Curtis that I went to school with in Sydney. If you are, I’d really like to catch up – it’s been years since you left for the States.

    If so, send me an email.

    Didn’t you make a comment to Matron’s blog? Do you mind if I ask you how do you fit the EU and high density grazing together on your farm? You can email me if you want to. My farm’s not been inspected since getting into high density grazing and I’m wondering how the pastures will be viewed. They don’t look like a golf course, but rougher with about ten percent or so of older grasses standing (especially under previous temporary fence lines). They’ve got the clean look that inspectors and locals seem to associate with a pasture or a harvested crop of hay only a few times in a year. Those are my two options to designate the fields as, perennial hay crop or perennial pasture. Both have a harvesting requirement. A permanent pasture would be still different and it has a must be kept open requirement instead of the usual harvesting requirement, so in that case I couldn’t let the grasses go to seed at all. I don’t intend to poison the weeds either, and that may also become a problem. Have you had much trouble?

    Thank you
