About Me

I was born and grew up in Coventry, England. I attended Caludon Castle High School and continued onto Coventry Technical College studying electrical and electronic engineering and telecommunications.


My career began and ended in the telecommunications industry. Initially, I buried telephone cables and climbed telegraph poles before holding various engineering and management positions with some major corporations before starting my own business.

In addition to holding down a regular daytime job, I gained experience in owning a business in my late teens and early 20's by spending 8 years managing a discotheque and a nightclub, including serving time as a disc jockey a few days of the week.


In 1982, I emigrated to Ottawa, Canada, where I spent two years before my company relocated me back to Great Britain, where I lived in Llandogo, South Wales. Itchy feet made me pack bags again. In 1985, my company made me an offer I couldn't refuse and relocated me to Boca Raton, Florida in the United States, preempting a three year job commitment in the country of Papua New Guinea.

In 1998, I co-founded a successful software development company. Because of the global nature of my company’s products and my position as head of sales and marketing, both domestic and international business travel was a necessity.

 

I have traveled extensively around the world both on business and pleasure and have been responsible for selling technology into over 80 countries worldwide. I also lived in Singapore during 2007 and 2008 to introduce my product line into the Asia Pacific region.

I sold the business in June of 2013 and now spend my time traveling for pleasure, however to the more obscure and off-the-beaten-track places.

 

To date, I have visited over 90 countries, which is likely to increase due to my speaking assignments on cruise ship around the World, although I really do not count the places where I have stayed less than 24 hours.
 

It's been a wild ride and I realize that I have been very fortunate. Life's been good so far and it's not over yet, however I do realize that it will come to an end one day.

Safe travels.
