I'm a Lancashire lad from Blackpool, with an accent rounded by life travelling in the Middle East and Asia, Hampshire and Pembrokeshire - I no longer speak like my brother and father.
Which is a bit of a shame.
I am married to Louise - the best woman to come out of Middlesbrough,
or anywhere else for that matter.
We have a cat named Holly (who thinks she's a dog such is her propensity to follow us around) and a dog named Jasper (who thinks the couch is his), 5 sheep and a dozen chickens.
Having friends all over the world - a blessing
Punctuality in all things
8 hours a night sleep
Living in Pembrokeshire
Really good beer
The music from the 1954 Bollywood classic Nagin
Indian food, and especially coriander
EastEnders - why is it so shouty?
Weeding the allotment
Mizzle - that misty, drizzle we get here in Crymych
I am a self taught photographer having become interested whilst travelling and working in the Middle East and Asia in the late 80s. Back then my passion was street photography, capturing images from some of the remotest parts of the globe.
Fast forward through a career in the travel industry I find myself in Pembrokeshire, where stunning landscapes provide plenty of technical challenges. See my personal stuff, including old images from Asia from the 1990's, here.
