About me

I was born in Bedford and brought up in what has now become Milton Keynes.  After  serving in the the Royal Navy in my younger years where I gained a good understanding of ceremonial matters, I later went on to have a long career in Social Work and Youth Justice.  Unusually this was placed on hold for several years when I ran away away to join the circus, leading me to also work professionally as a performer, actor and storyteller. I feel that I am fortunate to have had a rich, varied and rewarding working life up until now, but nothing that I have done previously compares with the great honour and privilege of celebrating someone’s life, telling their story, and supporting those who loved and cared about them to say a fitting farewell.
