Originally from Stafford, I moved to the North East of England where I was a scientific glassblower producing glassware for the semi conductor industry. In 2001 and due to unforeseen circumstances I turned my hobby into a profession and relocated back to Staffordshire. 

I love to keep fit and the great outdoors and have a passion for hiking, especially with my wife Ange and our two boxer dogs, Roxy and Lexi. I also love landscape photography.... a fantastic combination!

We especially love  the Lake District and Snowdonia where we try to visit as often as possible, but we also live on the doorstep of Cannock Chase and the Peak District which are all fabulous areas for landscape photography. 

Living next to Cannock Chase is also great for my other hobbies.... running and cycling!
