My name is Mike.┬áMy friend Victor dubbed me as cbay (pronounced ‘see-bay’) back in ’98. Popular belief dictates that it was a rip-off of eBay, but I like to believe it’s simply a shorthand version of my surname. Along the way I tried other monikers, but cbay stuck.

I’m a generation Y husband, and proud dad of two. I have started sharing my thoughts about my parenting journey.

My wife and I have a passion for creativity, most of which is expressed through photography. We share this over at

I’m a self-confessed scratch nerd; I bought turntables initially to teach myself how to scratch, but eventually learnt how to mix. There’s still much more to the art of DJing that I could learn. I’ve recorded music with MC’s Chux, Krayziwun (for solo projects, and together as Mainground) and Ello C; and with groups LHA and TruthBeHeard.

Here’s a picture of me from a long time ago. Mouse-drawn by my brilliant wife, who, at the time, was not my wife yet.

I’ve been told I haven’t changed a bit.

During the day I create media for one of the universities in Sydney, Australia.
