Born and bred in England, in 1994 I sold my London flat, resigned from my job, moved to the Netherlands and rented a room in a B&B.

Foolhardy? Perhaps.

Within 6 weeks I'd found work, a home just outside Rotterdam, and started following Dutch lessons for two evenings a week.

The gamble paid off.

I've always been interested in photography, and learnt a valid lesson from my father (a Technical Illustrator/photographer): never leave home without a camera.

"I can't go back to yesterday because I was a different person then."
