About Me

 

My journey is, and has always been, an adventure, a colourful quest that has called me to travel in every possible sense.  I have gone where my searching has taken me, not to be anywhere in particular but simply to grow and make a heartfelt contribution.

 

The fundamentals of my life are held in who I am and not what I do, own or aspire to.  There are elements I can share with you; these by no means describe or determine me, they should be seen merely as signposts along the road Im walking.
