About me

I am half-way through the WSET Diploma, done the plod work on spirits, leaving just still wines to work on now, aiming to finish ….., but things have slowed a little as I learn to play the electric guitar. I am not in the trade, so I don’t have that enviable exposure to the business, but do have access to all the trade events.

I started out in the merchant marine, qualifying as ship master,  then hydrographic surveyor. I then moved into consultancy in the oil and gas exploration industry, then back to university for a PhD in satellite navigation systems.  I have been back in the UK for some years now, having previously lived in New Zealand, China and South Africa.  There are few places that I have not been, but my geographic knowledge of the UK is terrible.

    I, too, am half way through the Diploma but Spirits will have to wait as Unit 3 looms.
    Like your site very much and find it really helpful. Cheers.
