I’m one of those people described in Barbara Sher’s book Refuse to Choose. I’m a scanner, a multipassionate, not easily pigeon holed. I’m interested in so many different and often diametrically opposed pursuits. I’m unconventional, quirky and live outside the circle (some might call this eccentric).
I fascinate by being the Provocateur (see above).
I’m on a quest to understand more about what makes me tick and to use this knowledge to live purposefully and aligned with who I truly am. I want to share this with others to enable them to find greater fulfilment.
Taking photographs is one of my favourite things. Over the years my subjects have changed but the love of photography has never diminished. I photograph as much with my iPhone 7+ as I do with my DSLRs. I discovered street art and grunge relatively recently. A couple of sessions with Adrian McGarry revolutionised my photography and set me off on a quest to uncover the often unseen.
The greatest delight for me comes from finding some hidden treasure, seeing things that most people won’t ever notice, spotting a tiny feature so well concealed that it’s only found by a few.
I believe there is beauty in the derelict and dilapidated and looking for it illuminates life from a new perspective.
I’m an Ambassador for Speed of Sight, a charity close to my heart which provides driving experiences for blind and disabled people.
My other half is completely blind – we met through our mutual involvement with Speed of Sight.
