Yep, I have been living in Los Angeles for going on 20 years now. Life is good here in California ( Arnie Land ) but I always miss Australia. Every few years I try to make it back there to catch up with friends and family. My wife and I still have a house on the beach in Chelsea.
I work developing video games which is what brought me here in the late 80s. I guess much of the video games industry is based in California. I am currently working on a game for the Sony PS3 called Saints Row ( http://www.saintsrow.com
) which is pretty much virtual gang war with a gangsta rap / hiphop flavor. It's a dirty job but someone has gotta do it lol.
