Ujaz Tresong was born in Sydney in 1965, where he still lives. He is an avid and wide reader who has learnt more since leaving school than ever did at it. As a young man he tried to become well rounded by learning how to make the artifacts in common use. He has always taken a deep interest in the philosophies of life and has brought a scientific evidence based approach to this. Presently he is semiretired and works with the urban poor. To this he brings blunt truth and a sharp compassion.
