About Me

Well I have been around the block a few times. Went around the world mostly overland, ended up being a ten year journey. I went back to school when I was thirty, doing a couple of “A” levels and then getting into uni studying Psychology at 32. I got a job with London Probation Service who went on to fund me for a Masters degree. I was a Probation Officer in London (Willesden) where I grew up, for 3 years. I am a counsellor and have worked with those addicted to substances.

I moved to Ireland in 1994 and set up a computer business resulting in becoming an ISP (Internet Service Provider) . Due to ill health and loss of staff this folded in 2006. I resurrected my web in 2009 but then lost it all in 2011 when i contracted cancer. I was ill for a couple of years.

In 2013 I started again but didn’t really get going until 2015.

I’m back to full strength now.

I have a lot of skills and also know where to find those that have more.


I am a Fellow of The Royal Society of Arts
