The Captain

G'Day. The name is Leam Mark Farrar and I am from Sydney, Australia. I'm a qualified primary school teacher but I work as an Intercity train guard, so I get to travel from the Blue Mountains (west) to Sydney every single day and I love it! I have lived in Sydney most of my life, bar a short period in 2015 where I lived in Suffolk, United Kingdom.

I am also very much a "train buff" and a political "hack" as they put it. While I was at university, I was Chief of Staff and senior political advisor to the president at my university. During that same period; I was also chair of the campus council (my university has six campuses), and I also did some freelance writing for the student newspaper, on political events both university-wide as well as state and federally, so that students have an idea of what is actually going on in their world from the political side of things. It kept me busy but I love doing what I do. I am the eldest and I have my little sister, dad and two beautiful nieces. That's just the immediate family, there is countless aunts, uncles and cousins.

As for fleet simming, I have been simming since October 2007 and have been part of Bravo Fleet since January 2010, but I have now made Bravo Fleet my full home after spending some time between two different fleets. This is my home and I don't plan on leaving anytime soon. Here in Bravo Fleet, I have served on the Infobase team, I have also been a Task Group Commanding Officer, Task Force Executive Officer and was Task Force 72 Commanding Officer for just over four years until late 2016 when I stepped down to focus on my own simulations.

I currently command the USS Excalibur (http://uss-excalibur.com) over in Task Force 93 and the USS Cavalry (http://uss-cavalry.com) within Task Force 99 and I look forward to making Bravo Fleet the best fleet in the world!
