I am originally from Wales in the UK. I now live in Auckland, New Zealand, where I live with my three sons, one cat, and two chickens.
Before settling in New Zealand I spent two years on a working holiday in Australia and visited various countries in Europe. I have also visited New Zealand, Samoa, China, Tahiti and Bali. I worked for a Travel Information Centre In Auckland for seven years helping tourists plan their trip around New Zealand.
I have lived with Melanoma for ten years which has stopped me traveling for the last two years as it came back with a vengeance. You can read my Melanoma story here. I have now been Melanoma free for a year.
I am passionate about Travel and Art. Some of my paintings reflect on some of the countries I have visited.
