I’m a keen golfer with over 35 years of golfing experience in both amateur and professional ranks. I like scenic courses that are harmonious with their environment, strategic courses that take you on a journey with their routing and are an honest but fair technical test that inspire to take on heroic and thrilling shots. Risk and reward. Currently playing off a 3 handicap at Blackmoor, England, I’m a keen a skier, golfer and traveller. I’m the consulting Director of Acceler-it, bringing IT Personnel to fast growth young tech companies. I’ve played in over twenty countries and am still keen to travel to the ends of the earth to play a new course; my bucket list locations are Argentina (Done), Vietnam and Mauritius. I’m a member of several societies and also play competitively in teams and individually.
