I was born in Hampton, Middlesex, England. After finishing school I joined the British Army and served as an Infantryman and later as a radio operator within the Battalion Mortar Platoon. After my time in the military, I trained as a computer programmer and embarked on a long career in IT.
Alongside my IT work, I always enjoyed photography and writing fiction, sometimes drawing on my military and IT backgrounds. I have written and self-published short stories including The Watchers, Attack on the Clyde, The Bullring Bombing and The Water Thieves.
