About Me




About Me

Accountancy was my life until I discovered long distance walking.

I was an international tax consultant, now retired as a tax partner with accountants Grant Thornton in London. I spent most of my time explaining American bureaucracy to Brits and helping Americans do business in the UK. During my career I was based in London, Oxford, New York, High Wycombe and Slough.

Before joining Grant Thornton I was with KPMG in London, from 1969 to 1979.

I was educated at Bristol Grammar School and Lincoln College, Oxford, where I took a degree in Arabic and Persian.

I travelled widely in my youth, long before the days of cheap air travel. I visited over 30 countries, from Morocco to Afghanistan, before I set foot in a plane. I have walked in Nepal, Greece, the Alps, the US, Canada, New Zealand and Chile.

I have been married for over 40 years to Susan. We now live in Nidderdale in Yorkshire.
