I am a singer/song writer, guitarist, producer and sound healer, with over 20 years experience in the music business; recently
recording my debut music album. I have been actively interested in video production and photography for many years, and
have edited and produced several music videos. I have an active interest in whales and dolphins, particularly in regard to
sonar. I have a compassion for those less fortunate, and enjoy the rewards of working with recovering addicts, and at risk
young people, inspiring and empowering them to lead healthy and productive lives, and be all they can be. I have run Youth
Councils, held exhibitions and organized charity events, and am interested in healthy, sustainable living, green technologies,
organic farming, environmental issues, world cultures and ethnic minorities. I have 2 children; my son is at University and m y
daughter is a qualified masseuse. I have 30 years life experience in Substance Abuse, having lost both my children's father
and their stepfather through addiction and alcoholism. Their deaths are a major driving force behind my passions in life.
