From the UK, but a frequent traveller of the world. I am an experienced negotiator, property developer and theologian as well as a website developer, entrepreneur, and innovation strategist. I may post my reflections on any or all of these.
I cofounded a social enterprise that provides sustainable employment for disadvantaged individuals, and supports like minded business people who want to do the same.
I follow Jesus, because his love reached down and found me just as I was and changed my life. I get really excited about seeing lives changed, people finding freedom and joy, and learning ever more about the depths of grace.
I have a particular interest in the right to freedom of speech; my travels through Russia have given me an insight in to what it feels like to face state censorship, and I believe no man is free who cannot speak his mind. May views that we may rather not hear be exposed by their poor basis in actuality rather than silenced by some collective insecurity and fear of offense.
I think Ralph Waldo Emerson was right when he pointed out that the world needs more people who have come alive.
I am excited by adventure, and inspired by any opportunity to go where none have stepped before. The difference we make in life is not the product of what we do. It is the difference between that which would have still happened without us.
I enjoy the classics, think philosophically and value those who love to think. I am intellectually curious, to a fault, and need to think through everything rather than take it at face value.
