A mature, happy guy having enjoyed a roller coaster ride throughout my life. A disc jockey in the late 60's travelling throughout Europe, owning caravans in St.Tropez in my early twenties, whilst having a career in retail management and hospitality. Being a total Francophile, with two succesful " Franglais" restaurants under my belt, and many enjoyable years as a good food/hotel inspector for les routiers. We almost purchased a restaurant in La Rochelle, but decided to search for a second holiday home, on the coast, as this would be home from home as we live in Aberystwyth, Wales. Spending three years travelling and inspecting property abroad ; Fethiye Turkey, Kyrenia North Cyprus, La Rochelle France, Marrakech Morocco, just to name a few! whilst touring Morocco we fell in love with Essaouira, and guess what, we purchased a traditional Berber house, far from the maddening crowd.
I am actively involved in animal welfare charities, fundraising, passionate about food, photoghraphy, art, and Morroco, and head chef at a wonderful residential home.
