He emerged in the late 70s with a Chemistry degree and a passion for real ale, naval history, Pythonesque humour and progressive music. He was all set for an unremarkable 35-year career in the pharmaceutical industry.

With the business of marriage and procreation (two sons) also accomplished he has now retreated to the Shropshire Hills with his wife and a rescue cat.
