In His Own Words

About him

In these challenging times, I thought I'd share some words which encapsulated my approach when I was responsible for the safety and security of aid workers, including myself, confined to compounds in war-torn South Sudan:-

“There is an Indian proverb that says that everyone is a house with four rooms, a physical, a mental, an emotional, and a spiritual. Most of us tend to live in one room most of the time but unless we go into every room every day, even if only to keep it aired, we are not a complete person.”

Rumer Godden

I've worked in various roles for charities and NGOs around the world.
For the last three years, I've been giving talks on cruise ships about places I've visited and my adventures.
I enjoy a wide range of music, world cinema, art and theatre.
I spend my time writing, reading, attending pub quizzes, playing bridge, tennis and table tennis.
I'm looking to share a partner's interests and adventures.
Fortune favours the brave!

About his ideal match

My ideal match is a woman with a good heart whose first thought is for the welfare of others, and who leads a full and busy life with lots of interests.
Ideally she would be creative, imaginative and looking for someone similar in that respect.
She is likely to be very direct, straightforward, with a strong personality and a clear sense of purpose - passionate about life.
