Short Biography

I have run a Blog ( for 6-years, which records my progress through the 19 National Trails of England, Scotland and Wales.  This led to further walks, notably the Wales Coast Path.  I am also a long-distance cyclist having completed the North Sea Cycle Route (6,000km) and Land’s End to John o’Groats (via the Wild Atlantic Way in Ireland for fun – 4,000km).  Keeping a log and as an avid reader; I decided to start writing.

I have recently completed a book recalling my experiences of walking the National Trails and will finalise copy soon.  I would like to contact agents, publishers and seek general advice on becoming an author, writing narratives on outdoor travel.

When not walking or cycling, I am a freelance IT consultant specialising in IT strategy and operating models after a career spanning 30-years at senior levels in many multi-national companies in Asia, Europe and the US.
