I’ve always had itchy feet, being a professional yacht Captain & Photographer for 29 years. Sailing over 150,000 miles (7 times round the planet) touring Asia, America & Europe, I raced in the BT Global Challenge from Southampton-Boston.

I joined Mission Antarctica in 2000-02, and I skippered Yacht 2041 to South Georgia & Antarctica on environmental expeditions, removing 1,000 tons of waste from the Peninsular.

I worked with Ellen MacArthur in Europe on Trimaran B&Q, & in 2004 rescued Virbac from mid-Atlantic, after her keel broke & she capsized during The Transat Race.

Spending most of my life at sea, I decided it's time to see some land, & after travelling round 8 countries in SE Asia in 2006/7 I headed back to boats skippering a yacht in Patagonia, before travelling through most of South America.

I enjoyed South America so much, that I decided to stay a bit, & that's where I am now living in heart of the Andes in Cusco.
