Born in the heart of the New Forest in a small cottage under the concrete tower in Sway. First memories were, as a child, running free through the forest and riding through the trees on the petrol tank of his dadís old green army motorbike. Lived in a nissen hut on Beaulieu aerodrome, slept in the flickering light of the Fawley flares and ran away to sea (the world) at the tender age of sixteen.

Served on the high seas, and low ports, in Her Majesties Royal Naval Frigates. Drawing and cartooning from Mozambique to Jamaica and Hong Kong to Bahrain and in submarines in the dark, silent, lonely depths of the cold war - sneaky boats.

Matured into an art student in glorious Devon, crafted, graphted and freelanced through design studios in Plymouth, London and Cambridge, rising to the dizzy heights of Chartered Designer, before moving to the quiet Suffolk countryside where, still drawing, painting and graphicing he resides with his partner, Hannah, and a dog called Bean.
