About Me
I was brought up in Corby, England from a working class Anglo Scottish, Irish family, with also Anglo Indian ancestry.

I spent a lot of my youth involved with the new age traveller scene, that prevailed during the late 1980's to mid 90's.

In my time, I studied philosophy & ancient spirituality, ranging from existentialism to the ancient mystery cults, gnostic Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism & Taoism.

I worked as a mental health worker for nearly 10 years, learning much about the human condition.

My poetic influences vary from William Blake to the Beat poets.

I have also been inspired by the philosophical writings of Alan Watts.

The themes of my poetry are based on my personal experiences and insights that I have gleaned from life and the great kind people I have met on the way.

I also paint in oils, so like to design my own book covers to add that personal touch.

I therefore hope that you enjoy reading my book of poetry & find some very human food for thought.
