Roger chappell was born in the English coastal town of Eastbourne. At age three he was living on the French island of Guernsey and at age five he had moved to New Zealand. By age six, his home was Tasmania Australia.
After finishing school, he moved with his parents to Brisbane Queensland and tried to work out what he wanted to do. Something art or computer related was expected, but not much of that happened. Finally, in 1999, art met computers in the form of website development, and he and his partner created their company Media Two Web Development.
He met his wife online in Norway in 2003 and in person in 2006. She moved to Australia in 2007 and they married in Seattle in 2010. They had their first of three children in 2016.
During all this time, his stories wrote themselves in his mind, until one day, they started to climb out and onto the screen.
