At the age of 16 I joined the Royal Navy and became a Clearance Diver. Although a very small and unique branch of the RN, I have been lucky enough to travel the world and have worked in many diverse and interesting cultures; from the coastal waters of the UK, the hostile waters of Iraq, through to the inspiring seas of the Far East. The job itself, involved diving and disposing of ordnance in sometimes very dangerous conditions.

Twenty three years in the armed forces, I believe, has given me a whole array of experiences on which I can draw and use as inspiration in my designs.
