A friend once described me as a cultured lout because I will drink lager while listening to opera, I will have pie and chips for pre theatre dinner, and I appreciate Muse as much as Mozart.

I am a father, and a husband. A friend and a son, I am a Photographer, a Buddhist, a reluctant gardener, a dog owner and an Opera lover.

I am not always good at any of them. (And I'm a rubbish gardener).

Photography is my passion but it is not my priority, so I am not able to spend as much time as I would like to improving it.

I am an avid Opera fan (particularly Berlioz and Offenbach), although I do not see nearly enough. Someday I would like to combine my love of Opera with my photography, and make portraits of Opera singers.

I also like Coffee, Red Wine, Cognac, Bourbon, Dr Who, Travel, and learning. Doesn't matter what, as long as I'm learning.

  • Work
    • Not as important as the other stuff
  • Education
    • Just enough formal, not enough informal
