A Little About Me

It was at the age of 11, as I watched my father develop a B+W print in a home made darkroom (bathroom) one day in Singapore, that marked the beginning of a lifetime fascination with photography. Add in the fact I am passionate about animals in general, and both wildlife and conservation, it was no real surprise that one day I would find myself on safari in Kenya. Although, working for the UN at the time, I could spend hours with the camera alone in the field whilst on mission in places like Kosovo, Iran, Namibia and all over Europe of course, I wasn’t truly bitten by Safari until a trip to the Maasai Mara changed my life. From that moment on, having experienced what i believe is one of the best Safari experiences every day away from the Mara felt like a loss, and i longed to return. Now 20years later, no matter how many days I spend there, although I now know the Mara well enough to get round in the dark, it never fails to excite and astound .

Started out in life in the Metropolitan Police, before eventually moving to the UN in Geneva, and then missions in Namibia, Iran, before marriage and the arrival of 2 amazing children, separation after 13 years followed by a long stint in Kosovo,and finally divorce, before eventually leaving the UN to work as a consultant on USAID projects. Onto a year in Liberia, 14 months in Burundi, 3 years in Afghanistan (buzkashi and bombs), 4 years Kenya (lots of safari), South Sudan (lots of gunfire) and Sierra Leone (lots of Ebola). Somewhere in between I gained custody of my 2 daughters, and since then a single life.

I can’t say I’ve lived your typical life, 14 schools (army brat) Police, a spell with horses and then, a relatively stable period, before divorce, and onto a nomadic life in the development world in an effort to be able to provide my children with the sort of opportunities they deserved. I’m probably lucky to be still in one piece when i think of it, riding a motorcycle daily in Nairobi, regularly driving long distances at night on some of the worst roads you can imagine in Kenya, blown up in Kabul, standing in the middle of 150,000 afghan males (along with the only female within a km), with 200 galloping buskashi horses racing past in Afghanistan, sharing a precariously unsteady mud bank with a 6m long crocodile called Gustav, (who is known to have eaten at least 160 people, locals put this closer to 300+ ), driving through firefights in South Sudan after arriving 15 days before it hit the fan, a year in Sierra Leone at the height of Ebola, and generally enjoying life in between, i can’t say it hasn’t been fun.
A fanatical squash player, I still play every day, and happy to have recently enjoyed time on the court with my eldest daughter who has just taken up the game. Two great girls, they make it all worth while, all of us animal lovers, especially dogs, its been tough at times, but all in all we have been lucky in a way to profit from life in a way most people don’t, so no regrets.
