Bulwer was born in Hughenden in QLD in the 80’s to a housekeeping
mother, and a daguerreotypist father.
From an early age he had a thirst of knowledge for the particular, wanting to know everything about everything. This can probably be attributed to the 250km he had to travel to school to Charters Towers.
It was only natural then that he went on to study epistemology at the University of Notre Dame (Aus not US) but dropped out after 2 years, citing ‘ It just wasn’t enough’.
Always being an avid sportsman, an enthusiastic rower and bocce player, he would be often frustrated by the incorrect and inaccurate reporting of events that he attended.
He saw a need for an honest, insightful journalist who wouldn’t settle for anything less than the whole story. His first article was printed in the Nyah Times, breaking open the story of corruption at the Callop Tournament of 1994. Even though he suffered major backlash from officials and fans, it never deterred him, only drove him harder.
After landing front page articles in the Yass Tribune, Albany News, and Port Pirie Post, he now lends his expertise to www.thegurgler.com
