BEST THING ABOUT EAST ANGLIA:
The coastline – I love the sea!
I always wanted to be Jacques Cousteau – I was motivated to study Marine Biology because of him
WHERE YOU LIVE, WHERE YOU’RE ORIGINALLY FROM (AND WHAT BROUGHT YOU HERE), HOW OLD YOU ARE, WHO YOU LIVE WITH:
I live on the Suffolk/Essex border but was originally brought up in what is now West London. I lived in London when I was first married and when we decided to move out, we came east because that’s where my wife’s family were from – in and around Boxford. I’m now 54 and live with my wife Ro who I met at school when we were 17.
