About Me
Married with two grown up children, a lifelong poet, a student of English literature, an avid croquet player and, unlike Hamlet, interested in all the uses of this world.   Born in Romford Essex 22/10/48, and brought up in Dagenham Essex, a suburb of East London. Went to Exeter University, met  my wife Mavis,.  Had a good time, made some good friends who I still see.

       I decided to become a   Primary School teacher, After 20 years I gave up teaching and went back to University to do an MSc in Software engineering, Then I went back to University again to do a PhD in computing.  I got a job at Sun Microsystems  working on fault tolerant computers and network switches. 
 
 In 2004 Sun  Microsystems offered me compulsory early retirement so I took it. I am now a happy Internet poet and Literature Student at the Centre for Lifelong Learning in Newcastle:-

I I have recently become the poetry editor of Gold Dust Magazine, a poetry impressario, organising Poetry Performance events in London, Leeds and Newcastle Upon Tyne's Theatre Royal.
