I am interested in, and concerned for, Islands, their literature (the Odyssey  and the Tempest), their landscapes and seascapes and their culture, always looking two ways, outwards to the world, sea and skies and ( with insularity) inwards.

A member of Jersey Canoe Club, I have kayaked in other Islands and archipelagos, close to home,  offshore reefs, Guernsey, Sark, Herm, and Chausey,  in the middle distance, the Breton islands, and further away, the Inner and Outer Hebrides, Corsica and the Cyclades.

I have lived in Jersey for 40 years, in the same house in the parish of Grouville for 34 years. Anne & I are involved in the Community. She drives for Meals on Wheels. I was formerly a Jersey Law Commissioner. I have written papers on Jersey Company, Trust and Property Law. I am actively involved in the Société Jersiaise, so Island life, with Jersey’s historical, legal and judicial uniqueness, is important to us.
