About Me


to show people the real england, to visit everywhere and evryone, and to do funny things with chairs..


After making music but not making it in music, 'til I was 30, I became a personal trainer. Recently started writing for a magazine and website of a very large company who shall remain nameless.
I've travelled to Oz, Mexico, The States, Central America, Thailand and a fair bit around Europe. Never for long enough. I@m desperate to see more.
I've recently bought A Shack next to a wood which I'm doing up and should be living in soon....It'll be solar and candles... There's water on site but not in the shack... The woods are huge and beautiful and you can't hear cars. I love it.
I drive a '71 VW Beetle. I love it.
I'm finally getting to see Stevie Wonder in September, I believe He's a God of sorts.
Curb your enthusiasm makes me laugh. So do many other things but I shan't bore you.
I like drinking, I like climbing trees, I like sun, I like reading East of Eden.

My shack is finally finished and fully ready for hosting I'm busy a fair bit, bombing around the place but, if you're anywhere round these parts after that, get in touch, I'm ready for a-hostin....


Google 'Desiderata' That pretty much covers it, I'm probably not even close yet....... You can but try.
