I was born in Hemel Hempstead in the fifties. I was raised and schooled there. During this time I developed an interest in electronics and Radio. Offshore Radio was active at this time and my love of Radio Caroline was born.
I went to college at Welyn Garden City and studied Electronics for two years. After this I moved to Fareham in the south of the UK. Here I stayed, got married, had two children and brought and sold houses with a long career in Radio and TV engineering.
In 2016 I was diagnosed with Parkinson's. This was not the end of life but like being reborn into a more exciting life. Suddenly I could right poetry, I could paint, non of which I could do before.
In 2019 my marriage to my second wife broke down and I moved to Derby. Since then Parkinson's has progressed and I have had to give up work. To keep myself as active as possible I continue to paint and write poetry. I also present the odd Radio show on Shaky Radio. I also like using my new found creative skills slowly putting together websites, such as this one
