I have been writing since my mid-teens, in the last few years I have decided to share my thoughts publicly.
Most of the poems on this site are accompanied by audio tracks, feel free to click on and listen. Comments are welcome.
I served in the British Army between 1983 and 2005, my service took me to many areas of conflict. Upon leaving service I worked in the private security industry and travelled extensively throughout Africa, Southern Asia and the Middle East. Many of these scribbles are influenced by my experiences in the Army, quite a few are reflections of my time post military which in many ways was a catalyst for increased conflict, both internally and existencially.
I now live in the South-East of England, unfortunately I have not yet found the time to settle down or have wild windy walks with my imaginary dogs.
I hope you enjoy some of these strange experiences and my reflections on them.
