Born in 1983, William Hastings Burke grew up on Sydney Harbour. He has lived in the US, Germany, Norway and the UK. After graduating with an honours degree in Economics Soc. Sc. from the University of Sydney, he set up base in the student town of Freiburg, Germany. Living on sachet mashed potato mix, kebabs and a few shifts at the local pub, he began a three year, self-funded journey to uncover the story of Albert Göring.
Fed up with the stuffy academic approach to history, he is part of a new generation bringing history up to speed. William currently lives in London.
