About the Author

Graeme Evans was born in Nelson (New Zealand), and grew up at Ardmore and Papakura (in South Auckland). He represented Papakura High School in sports - rugby, athletics, swimming, and fencing - and was also a prefect.

In 1971 he joined the Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF), initially being based at Wigram in Christchurch. There he attended Canterbury University for three years, qualifying with a BSc in Computer Science, followed by a pilot training course from 1974 to early 1975. After gaining his wings, Graeme was relocated to Auckland, where he flew Bristol Freighters, C-130 Hercules, and helicopters, before being posted (with the rank of Squadron Leader) to a Ministry of Defence position in Wellington, that utilized his computer skills.

After leaving the RNZAF, he worked as an in-house IT consultant for the NZ Dairy Board, before forming his own consultancy and software development company - which he still runs.

Through his work experience, he has developed strong abilities to think through complexity and develop solutions that work in the real world - skills that are essential for writing a book of this nature.

While Graeme finds much stimulation in all things scientific and engineering, his main passion is observing and participating in the way God works authentically in people's lives. His breadth of interest has facilitated the book's holistic approach.

Graeme lives in Auckland (New Zealand) with his wife, Mejun (originally from Taiwan), and their three adult / teenage children.
