I was born in 1959 and have lived in Canada, England, Nigeria and the USA.
I attended university in Canada and England and have worked as a journalist on both sides of the Ocean.
I worked for the International Transport Workers Federation (ITF) from 1986 until 1997--I retired for medical reasons in December 1997. I suffer from ataxia (SCA 1)which is a genetic,multi systems degenerative disability that affects both my balance and motor co-ordination--more information a bout ataxia can be seen at the following...
Even though I can disabled, I still have the ability to function with my computer and other technology.
In fact, I am a great believer in the benefits of technology. I believe that machines make humans better, in other words technology civilizes people--primitive villagers are intrinsically hostile to "strangers". I also think that the internet is a significant literature
I do some work from home (internet and writing) -- and welcome feedback from people.
Politically, I am a socialist and an member of two unions--the transport and general workers union (TGWU) and the NUJ (Journalists).
