About Me

Please read my profile. It's only a few paragraphs, you can manage it.


I am from London in the UK.

I have homes all over the world and travel extensively. By way of example, in February 2016 I was in New York, then Mexico City and Cancun for six weeks, then Beverly Hills in April 2016, then New York again, now I am in Slovenia as of the end of April, then it's back to London in May and Mexico again at the end of May for a month, before the Pampalona bull run and then India.

I run a few businesses and am an author - I have three books being published in late 2016/ early 2017. If you want, you can read them.

I have a great deal of compassion for people who have suffered or are suffering, and endeavour to help them as I can. That compassion is particularly extended towards children, especially those who are victims of abuse or neglect.

I appreciate kind, honest people and try to treat people with respect, dignity and kindness (the way that we all want to be treated).

I hate rude people. In fact, I am sick and tired of them. Aren't you? If you're rude, or send a message then don't reply, or are not interested in meeting me, then we are not made for each other, sadly.

It takes time to get to know me, because I find it hard to trust people. But if you persist, I am a good, honest and caring friend, and I can let you join my life and we can perhaps have some fun around the world together.


My blog: I've been too busy to update it for a wee while, and the blog has never been promoted or publicised, but if you want to know me, reading my blog is the best way to do it.



Kindness is wisdom. Chocolate is tasty.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Helped farmers plough the fields of Palestine; got lost in the Amazon rainforest while living with a tribe of former cannibals; been to Belarus 34 times, Poland 26 times and Latvia around 8 times; fell down and got trapped on a cliff on the Crimea and was eventually rescued 2 days later; worked in orphanages and in a hospice in Belarus; spent three years writing my first book; almost had a script and idea for a sitcom accepted by the BBC in 2012 but they rejected it at the last minute after considering it. Consoled myself with chocolate and pancakes. Bummer.
