About Me

Hello friend,

Born in London, I grew up in Egypt and Spain. Pilot training in South Africa, and then travelling and working around the world ever since.

Working in areas of aviation as diverse as Humanitarian Aid, Oil and Gas, Travel and Tourism, VIP and Superyachts, I'm sure we'll have plenty to talk about.

Never married, no kids, I’m open minded, relaxed, easy going, spontaneous and adventurous.
