I’m a Writer, a Sailor and a purveyor of Facetiousness. Xbox Gamer and Book addict. Jazz and Blues fiend, appreciator of all good music. I’m a Lover of all things Football and Online Gambling. Island lifer, lover of the ocean, Flip Flop Fanatic and a Scooterholic. Quietly laconic, darkly sardonic and amazed by life, the universe and everything in it.
South African born and England raised. I spent most of my life running around the bush and beaches of Africa but I will never forget the streets of Manchester, the beaches of Brighton and the lights of Bristol where I spent the early days of my youth. Now I live on the sunny isle of Malta where I spend my days relaxing in the sun, enjoying long days on the beach and as many sailing trips and scooter rides around the island as possible.
I spend most of my time sitting in front of my laptop writing about the world around me. Upon finding my calling, I quickly realised that Confucius, that wily old wizard, knew what he was talking about when he said: “find a job you love and you will never work a day in your life”. This means I spend my days making things up. I get to wear out my fingers writing about anything that happens to interest me and can include anything from online gambling, gaming, sailing and the universe, and I have to say, there are few things that make me happier.
A few of my favourite things, in no particular order: Manchester United Football Club, Fontaine Pajot Catamarans and Ben Elton Books. Whale sharks and free diving. Clive Cussler adventures and Terry Pratchett characters. History books and oceanographic studies because the wonders of the deep blue sea never cease to amaze me.
I currently write for Highlight Media in Malta, where I spend my days writing about the ins, the outs and the excitement of the online gambling industry. For some, it may appear to be a dull job, but they wouldn’t know about the wonders of playing online. You get all the thrills of a Las Vegas casino, from the comfort of your own home, the café down the road or the beach.
Future prospects include the buying of my first house, my first yacht (even if it’s only a little one) and possibly the starting of my very own website. If I were to have one thing, right now that would make my life perfect, it would be my own column. Somewhere I could put my thoughts for the world to enjoy.
