|Bio||As a young IT Consultant, I was sent to Milano in 1974 for a 3 month assignment. I stayed until 1984! By which time not only was I a Manager in Sales and Marketing, I had met and married my beautiful wife Ruth (Fashion Designer for Laura Biagiotti and Illustrator for Giornale Tessille) and had a gorgeous bi-lingual daughter Chloe.
In 2006, at the age of 59, I took my last redundancy package in IT. We sold our house and moved lock, stock and barrel to Abruzzo. Chloe stayed in London working as a freelance Fashion Stylist in TV. Our son Fabian, now a folk musician in London, had just finished his guitar studies at music college and came with us. Ruth and I set up ‘Casa del Fiume – an Artist’s Award Winning Riverside Mountain Retreat’ which is the number one holiday rental in Abruzzo on TripAdvisor. Of course, Ruth is the Artist!
I am now committed to anything that preserves the heritage and natural habitat of this mountainous region which I now love and call home, focusing on sustainable tourism. Ageing Hippy, Muso, IMer, Mac-centric IT geek and now ECO warrior – even been interviewed on TV here with WWF!
