[the "goatee" has recently gone]

I am 39 years old (born 6th September 1969), 6 foot tall (164cm) and weigh roughly 13 stone, green eyes and short brown hair (with a touch of grey creeping in) and I live in Cheltenham, having moved out of Hay-on-Wye 5 years ago.


I am happily divorced (for the second time) and have two children from my first marriage - Gemma (15yo) and Sam (12yo). My children live with their mother, in Hay-on-Wye, although I do see them regularly.

I've been a full time "internet marketer" and Blogger, earning a living online since 2005, so I spent quite a bit of time on the internet and know my around lots of "web stuff".

I used to work as a software sales and marketing Director in the "Legal" market, i.e. with solicitors practices, and spent over 12 years doing so, mostly in sales.

  [Gemma & Sam Garrett]
  My kids, Gemma & Sam, are growing up way too fast,
and I spend as much time with them as I can. And yes, I know, the blond hair didn't suit me! lol
  I'm not a huge fan of horse riding, but I'm quite happy trying new stuff
  [blades are a lot of fun]
  Skiing is my favorite sport, I've been doing it quite a few years now, but still enjoy skiing with friends who are new to it .
  I also love Scuba Diving and have my PADI open water divers certificate, although I've only done a dozen or so dives so far...
  [Butterfly Bay, Olu Deniz, Turkey]
  I've also been para gliding in Turkey, which was cool!  scary
  [Red Square, Moscow]
  Like most people, I enjoy traveling, I've even spent a week in Moscow...
  [some mechano tower in france]
  I've also visited some of the more traditional holiday spots, Paris was a favorite of mine and I'll go back again sometime... 
  [liquid lunch]
  I'm a fairly "chilled out" and "laid back" kind guy,
and enjoy going out for a meal or drinks with friends ...

oh, and apparently I've got a fairly "silly" sense of humour...

This is a local view across the River Wye with Hay-on-Wye in the foreground. Hay is a beautiful place to live, with the black mountains and Brecon becons on the back doorstep, the scenery is spectacular. Hay-on-wye is a very popular tourist spot, and not just for the bookshops. 

If you found this site while looking for Hay-on-Wye then this site will give you more info about my old home town, including the Literature Festival: -
