I am a native of Nottingham England. I trained as an accountant with Nottingham City Treasury, and later as a computer programmer. I made a career of computing and worked in Birmingham, London, and eventually Manchester, where I started my own computer software house in 1979.

I completely restored a 16 roomed, one hundred year old house, and became successful in my life-long hobby of motor rallying when I won the British championship in 1979 and 1980.

In 1990, having achieved success in everything that I had done, I realized that there must be more to life than just making money. So I travelled overland to Thailand, through 19 countries, where I started a restaurant, met my Thai wife, and had a daughter, both of whom are here with me in Vientiane.

Of my 12 years in Thailand, five years were spent living with a minority hill-tribe in a mountain village.

I became a teacher in China in 2003, moved to Kunming in July 2007, and to Vientiane in July 2010.

As a result of my "new" life, I am interested in personal development, philosophy and spirituality, and take pleasure in writing on these topics, along with my experiences of visiting 30 countries, and running businesses for over 20 years.
