Who is Dags? (details on what makes The Dags ... so daggy)

*** A quick summary overview of The Dags ***

Dags is a mega cool dude who resides in Melbourne, Australia. Although generally unknown to world at large (for now), he does have some small claims to fame.

Aside from once being a serious Batman merchandise collector (refer to the Batman Collection page for more details), Dags has been involved in his local Science Fiction fan community since 1984 which has seen him run his own conventions; edit both his own and other fan club newsletters; make his own award winning costumes; produce and direct his own fan film; and he once even ran his own club - so you can kinda say he's been around a bit, as you can see here.

Dags was also a co-founder of Star Walking Inc: the Star Wars Appreciation Society of Australia back in 1988 and was on the committee of this club for 23 years before retiring in 2011 ... only to return again in 2013 (thanks to Disney) and now he's the editor of the club's monthly digitally produced newsletter. Talk about being a glutton for punishment!

Being involved with Star Walking meant Dags was able to achieve a lot in the Star Wars fan community, including:

- Visiting Skywalker Ranch in 1993 (look there he is! Second from the left)

.

- Appear on TV game shows Family Feud (see below) and 1 vs 100

.

- March in the 2009 Moomba parade as a Star Wars character (though just quietly, he also marched in the parade as a Star Trek character back in 1987, shhh)

- Help organise a large number of Star Wars conventions and themed banquets

- Appear in a number of costumed product launches and gala events

- Appear in the internationally released Star Wars documentary The Phandom Menace which presented The Dags with his first entry onto the IMDB

But the life of The Dags doesn't just revolve solely around Star Wars oh no, no, no. As it turns out The Dags is also a big Star Trek fan and has been involved in his local Star Trek fan club Austrek since 1984! In fact The Dags is the longest serving active member of the club (as in attending meetings on a regular basis), clocking up over 30 years of making appearances at these events. Now that's a LOT of Trekkin'!!!

But let's move on from the Sci-Fi community for a tick.

From 2004 to 2012 The Dags pursued one of his greatest passions, film making, under the banner of his own production company DMFilms.

It was his passion for films which allowed The Dags to create a number of short films whilst helping others with their productions as well - including some professionally paid ones.

Since completing his film making endeavours in 2012, The Dags has focused his energy on running Science Fiction conventions such as Con 9 From Outer Space in 2012 and Con 70 - A Retro Sci-Fi Adventure in 2015. So there's no denying he's been a busy lad. But not stopping there, now he's running his third and final convention Con 80: The Ultimate 1980s Sci-Fi Experience in 2017. Where does he find the time!

.

Finally, because The Dags has been actively involved in the local Science Fiction fan community for soooo long now (over 30 years and counting), for the past couple of years he's been writing his fandom memoirs, the idea being to recount as much of Dags' fandom history as possible for prosperity. It'll definitely make for an interesting read when its finished that's for sure.

In his normal life (yes believe it or not he does have one), The Dags lives in a modest three bedroom home which contains a room full of Batman merchandise, 8 bookcases, 2 lounge suites, his wonderful other half (Lynne) and his adorable cat (Lulu).

Blessed with an array of great friends and supporters, Dags acknowledges the three loves of his life - besides Lynne and Lulu:

1) His house (officially named Sylvia but more commonly known as The Dag House)

2) His bed - as Dags says "I never met a sleep-in I didn't like"

3) His Sci-Fi fan community - which has has truly shaped him into the Dag he is today.

There's a lot more exciting stuff to say about our ever popular Dags, but we suggest you check out the Who is Dags section of this site for that.
