I was born in England, Cornwall further back than I like to remember. It wasn't until my late twenties that I took the initiative to rise above my labourer / technician status and seek higher qualification. I studies for a degree in mathematics at Bath University and went on the Bradford and later Heriot Watt universities to acquire an MSc in risk and reliability.
I developed a passion for the outdoors, which included diverse activities such as speleology, hang-gliding, mountaineering, skiing, canoeing to mention just a few.
I travelled widely in my working career; so widely that I considered myself to be a global gypsy, working and travelling throughout South America, the Middle East, Asia Pacific and even Antarctica. I currently live and work in New Zealand with my wife and two children.
