I am happily married to Beverley and have two young boys, Oliver 6 and Charlie 3. I have a background and training in Marine Biology and Aquaculture and my career has focussed primarily on public aquariums, and I was, until recently, curator at the World Museum in Liverpool, UK. We have moved to the Island of St Helena in the South Atlantic Ocean to start a new life after my incredible wife applied for and was given a job as a Marine Science Advisory teacher, tasked with introducing Marine Biology to the secondary school curriculum.
As for me, I like to class myself as retired, which sounds distinctly better than unemployed. Besides being a Dad, home maker and conservation volunteer (I hope) I am an enthusiastic amateur photographer and hope to tell our story in words and pictures. Starting out with basic second hand equipment, an enthusiasm for learning new skills, and some you tube tutorials all sourced a month before moving out here, I will see where this passion takes me over the next two years. Who knows, when we leave I may be able to take it further and become the next David Bailey. I hope you enjoy the photographs and the story of our journey on one of the most remote inhabited Islands on Earth.
Please feel free to comment on any of my posts, I really welcome the feedback good and bad. Thinking of traveling to St Helena and want to know more, or on your way and like to meet up to have a start point on the Island, then please get in touch using the contact form below. St Helena has limited internet connection but Ill do my best to respond quickly.
