I am English, but have lived in many countries. I now live in Portugal.
In summary: lots of travel, economics at university, large advertising agencies – strategy and client liaison, built and sold two businesses, raised two kids …
After completing my economics degree I worked on the client liaison, strategy development and branding side of things in large advertising agencies. Then I worked for an environmental consultancy, learning how to design and implement large-scale risk assessments for oil companies before going off and doing this for my own company, which I later sold. I then invented a couple of things which became commercially successful and made it possible for me to look after my kids for ten years and train as a professional photographer.
I spent my early life in Jersey in the Channel Islands and parts of Africa and Borneo. My five years in Kota Kinabalu, in the shadow of the great mountain, were spent snorkelling on coral reefs, sailing in the dinghy my dad built me and generally running amok. I had no formal education until I moved to Nelson in New Zealand at the age of 10. At 14 my parents moved to Perth in Australia where I completed an economics degree and lived until I was 27. Two years travelling between Harare, Johannesburg, Cape Town, Toronto and Atlanta followed before spending 18 years in England and another six years in Cape Town and two in Portugal.
