Who am I?
Born in Cromer, Norfolk in the UK - a small traditional family seaside resort.
If you've never been to this part of the world before, I can thoroughly recommend it - from the beautiful medieval city of Norwich to the classic parkland of Sheringham Park to the wild and beautiful beaches of the North Norfolk coast, this is England as it should be.
That said, I couldn't get away fast enough after leaving school. Headed down to London and University - was obviously blown away by the bright lights of the big city as I lived down there for another 10 years.
My Damascene conversion happened in that most unlikely of places - a bar in Dubai. It was there that I met the woman of my dreams - a fellow traveller (well she was an air hostess) and that was that. Now married for 10 years with 2 fantastic children - Oliver (4) and Grace (2) we now live in a small village on the edge of Liverpool called Hale Village - home of the famous Elizabethan character "The Childe of Hale" - allegedly a giant! It's a lovely village - it is rural so reminds me of my Norfolk childhood but close enough to the city for my dearly beloved to engage in her favourite occupation - shopping!
