In this edition we chat to Stephen Mallia, Maltese master modeller extraordinaire.
I was born on the 7th July 1964, so at the time of writing Iím 43 years old. I come from Malta and until I got married in 1989 I lived in the capital Valletta. After marrying my wife Sina we moved to Guardamangia (or Gwardamanġia), a town just outside Valletta. We have two kids, Shirley (16yrs) and Sean (10 yrs.).
For 23 years I have been a member of the Malta Police Force and have another 2 years before I can retire. As you may expect this is not an easy job but very satisfying.
As for other interests, Iím very much into sports and like to watch practically any sports. I have practiced soccer, tennis, snooker and some athletics in my schooldays. In fact I try to practice tennis at least once a week to help my fitness. Iím also a qualified soccer coach.
