About me

I was born in the late 70s and raised in the south east of England. My mum bought me my first model from a jumble sale when I was about 5 years old. I’ve never stopped making models since.

Life has taken me to Cambridge, where I was a student for 8 years, finishing with a PhD in Geophysics, followed by getting married and a brief stint in recruitment in the pharma and biotech sector. My wife and I then moved to China where we lived for seven years, returning to the UK twice to have our two daughters. I spent many of these years learning Chinese full time.

In 2013 we came back to England to live on the edge of London, near Biggin Hill. I never would have imagined that a Spitfire flying overhead would become mundane! I worked as an Assistant Pastor for three years at Croydon Jubilee Church where I am still an elder and now work in law enforcement.
