Born in Birmingham, England, working in San Francisco, USA. Well, so would you if you were born in Birmingham! Works with geeky techie computer web-type stuff. Sports fanatic – again disappointing to be born in England, but at least living in the USA you know an American team is going to be ‘World Champion’ in their major sports each year.
Vowed never to do any more travel writing after publishing the successful book ‘SWEAT’; a vow quickly broken when returning to work for a living. Hobbies include standing up and shouting “I’ve been there” whenever a film or television programme with one of the many places visited during the travels comes on, just to annoy as many people as possible.
