Education mainly on the science side, through a degree in Botany and Zoology. About twenty years spent working in a medical laboratory, from which everyone was made redundant. I’ve been doing pays-the-rent typing work for the past six years or so. Outside work, I played and developed scenarios for fantasy role playing games with a group of friends for over fifteen years, play a little on the shakuhachi, am learning to draw and paint in watercolours.
I gained confidence in using my voice in public through casual singing in folk clubs in the early 1970s. Reading (mainly science fiction and fantasy) has been my main hobby since I was about seven. I’ve been making recordings for LibriVox since 2005.
