|Location||New York, New York, United States|
|Introduction||I have spent 24 of the last 31 years in the USA (but still have an English accent!), mostly in the NY Metropolitan area, but also lived in El Paso and New Orleans. Also worked in Dublin and Boston for a few months. I am the father of two kids, Sean, who left college last year, and Hannah who is currently a Junior at Brooklyn College. I married the wonderful and beautiful Jan in September 2009. I have a keen eye for beauty and the absurd and perhaps a slightly different take on some things - you decide from what you read. I am a die hard fan of Tottenham Hotspur. I am in IT, but was a London bus driver for 2 years. I have published my Diaries of a (London) Bus Driver, which chronicle a particularly rough period in my life and were written between 2003 and 2005. The link on this page will take you to these Diaries and several other articles I have written over the last couple of years, including ‘You are not me – the root of all conflict’ and "Square One'.|

If your whole body were a hot air balloon, would you stop eating spicy food?
No! I think that between spicy food and plenty of roughage, I could soar to unimagined heights!
