About

A (Very) Concise Background

I was born in Guy’s Hospital, which is just across the road from London Bridge in the borough of Southwark.

 

Southwark is famous a number of things such as London Bridge, Waterloo Station, Borough Market, Guy’s Hospital, St. Thomas’ Hospital and it’s where most of the stories by Charles Dickens are set. Former James Bond actor Sir Roger Moore and Sir Michael Caine are two famous people also born in Southwark.

 

I lived in south London all of my life until September 2000 when I upped sticks and moved to Sweden. For the first ten years I lived in Stockholm, a beautiful city and lovely people. In 2010 I moved to Helsingborg in the south of the country, just across the Öresund from Helsingör in Denmark.

 

My love for creating came from my childhood where I had a lot of time alone so I would create different stories and characters. I also like to give animals their own characters. I was also into technology in a big way getting my first computer for Christmas in 1983. A Sinclair ZX Spectrum with 16k memory!

 

I’m natural creative polymath and good at multi-tasking and people ask me how am I able to work in so many different projects at the same time. The simple answer is that it stops be getting bored.
