My Background

Some 72 years ago I was born only a mile or so from the River Tyne. Most of my life I have been involved in education, as a teacher of Modern Languages, Head Teacher, Chairman of the Board of a large FE College,and latterly as an Education Facilities Planning Consultant and Curriculum Analyst.
My honorary Fellowship from Northampton University was awarded for services to Education.

My Website

I am a constant thinker and writer and I hope to present my best examples of both thinking and writing on this site, namely those poems and stories that I have written that I still enjoy reading and papers containing the ideas I am most excited about, covering a wide range of issues that are important to me.

A Thought

“Now that for the first time better communication has become one of humanity's main priorities, no life can be considered to be fully lived if it has not benefited from all the encounters of which it is capable. Today, hope is sustained above all by the prospect of meeting new people.” Theodore Zeldin: An Intimate History of Humanity
