After a somewhat colorful life, I’ve decided to sit down and write about it. Both in person and on paper I prefer to use five, rather than ten words, so I’ll do this in bullet points.
- I had a pretty miserable childhood, being raised by a mentally – and later physically abusive Father, and an alcoholic mother
- I went on to enjoy a career as a professional pianist, performing on ships, and later some of the very best hotels, mostly in South East Asia
- I have cheated death several times, once on a ship, once in a car, and the Asian tsunami of 2004 almost got me too
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT IN MY AUTOBIOGRAPHY:
While I have enjoyed many magnificent experiences in my life, especially of being paid to travel, I’ve also gone through much sadness and heartbreak.
Writing my book has brought back many unpleasant memories, and I’ve found that the best way to write about those is by using the dark and dry humour for which I am known among my friends.
As outlandish as some of my experiences may seem, every word I’ve written is absolutely true; I’m not even going to add to the best of my recollection to that statement.
Pulling no punches, No Grey Areas is a candid and honest – to the point of being raw – account of my life.
It’s not just a story, it is – in some cases – a record of my experience of history.

I hope you enjoy the read, and the journey.
