I'm all about honesty and simplicity. The world is complicated enough without me adding another layer of complication.
What you see is what you get. I don’t like to shout, preferring to work quietly and diligently in the background enabling and facilitating. I’m quiet through a lack of confidence, not because I have nothing to say, and I value those who recognise this rather than just listen to the loudest in the room.
I have something called Kallmann syndrome which makes me fairly unique because just I am one in about 50,000 people who do. It took many years before I could put a label on the condition and know exactly what it was, and even now, when mentioning it to a GP or nurse, the reaction is “what’s that, I’ve never heard of it”.
It all started when my late father bought me a BBC Micro computer. As I explain in more detail here this led to me creating and developing a website about a F1 Grand Prix driver born out of my enthusiasm for motorsport.
In the 20 years since that first site I have developed my website skills and knowledge using various platforms, and widened my expertise into the application of social media as a means to reach and engage with a wider audience.
After working on websites for so long I thought it was time I had my own which is why you find me here on a little ego trip!
Every photograph you see on this website is one of my own. The scenery on my doorstep is a compelling reason for getting out into the fresh air and, inevitably, I take my phone with me wherever I go.
A scene will sometimes catch my attention, even if its the pier again, because things always look different with the changing seasons, weather, and time of day.
I’m certainly not a prolific taker of photos, but I will be adding to the collection here as time goes by.
