I used to work at the University of Liverpool as the Head of Business Systems, developing business intelligence and application solutions across all of the key areas of student, research, human resource, and finance. You can still see a video of one of the last projects I was involved in.  Sometimes I miss it, but mainly for all of the special people I worked with for over thirty years.

But then life took a different direction and I trained as a Lay Minister with the Church of England after three years of study at the Church of the Good Shepherd on the Wirral.

Then another turn and I now have the demanding but satisfying role of grandfather to four children.

Alongside all of those I have been an author and self-published a book of short stories from my time with the Ace of Scribes writer’s group.
