In His Own Words

About him

I hope that some of you reading this share my optimism and maybe even my sense of adventure.

Most of my working life has been in education. I retired early and instead of swanning round the world faced divorce. My retirement deal excluded my returning to education so after doing a stint in Sainsbury's I was able to apply and get a job working at John Lewis where I have taken retirement for a second time!

I live on a new estate on the outskirts of Cambridge (Trumpington Meadows) with my 20 year old son and Flash a Border Collie who takes me out for regular
walks.

About his ideal match

I think my ideal match starts with someone who if she does not see me as her ideal match has some humour and is prepared to see how close I can get.

I would hope that those preparing to write are able to explore a possibility of shared interests. In what was a very different era I have spent time teaching in the US and more recently in France (Toulouse).

Recent retail experience in John Lewis has also given me another insight into this world of work.
