Born in Sunderland, educated at Bede Grammar School for Boys, married, divorced, married total of 5 children and three granddaughters. The majority of my working life has been spent working for Drilling Contractors in Oil Exploration, during which I have had the pleasure and privilege of working all over the world, Norway, Saudi, Algeria, Pakistan, China, USA, Korea and Singapore to name a few.
Fortunate in having some really good friends that despite my long absences always profess pleasure in seeing me again. Two of which I have to thank for sparking my interest and encouraging me to have a go at video. One of them goes by the tag Funky Monkey and the other Lawrence Crosthwaite who unfortunately hasn’t as yet joined the Vimeo family.
