Jobs Fill Your Pockets

But Adventures Fill Your Soul

Ah the dreaded “about me” page, nobody likes writing these but without one the blog would not be complete so here goes!

This is My Story

Over the last 41 years I have been many things from clown to chef, from IT to land management and of course father, soulmate and family man.

As you may of already guessed I will turn my hand to most things because I was raised by a grandfather who instilled in me that you really can do anything if you put your mind to it.

For me each of the pictures to the right reflect an element of me, i guess, if life really does flash before your eyes, then these are the pictures I would choose to see.

My Hobbies and Passions


My life is surrounded by a family that I not only love but for whom I get out of bed every day for.  As I said at the very start, Life is a great adventure and I would love to share some of those moments with you in the hope that you get some enjoyment from them too.

I can promise you this, life is never quiet in our household and whether we are inside or outside there is always something going on as part of our next great adventure.


I grew up with technology, have always had a passion for gadgets and tech and the majority of my career has been spent working with organisations to help them leverage their technology investments.

Over the years I have picked up a whole host of tips and tricks that I would love to share in the hope that you find them useful too.

Outdoor Life

Technology aside I love to be outdoors, I am lucky enough to be involved in land management and all things equestrian.

If this lifestyle choice is one that you share I am sure you will find some interesting reading here.

Crafts and Makes

I have an incredibly creative streak and love to make things by hand when I can.  Over the years there arent many crafts that I havent tried (with varying degrees of success)

In this section I hope to share some of my best makes and some of my greatest insiprations.


For as far back as I can remember I have been passionate about photography and sought to learn every technique I could.  I follow many photography blogs and am constantly inspired to go out and create images that are not only beautiful but that also tell a story.

I will be writing articles here that not only show the end result but also step through the process of creating a given shot right the way through to final edits and digital enhancements.

This is such a bbroad topic for me so if you love Photography, Photoshop, Lightroom or are simply a point and click memory maker I am sure you will enjoy these articles.
