Born in Cardiff, Wales, UK. Went to Neath Grammar School and read Medicine at University College London, qualifying in 1970. Trained as an orthopaedic surgeon and gained higher qualifications. Appointed Consultant Surgeon 1984 in Neath and later Swansea. Bought my first computer from Tandy (Radio Shack) with a Daisy Wheel Printer (tack, tack, tack and more tacks) for £4000.00 at this point in time and, fascinated, have read about it ever since. I like rugby, singing, music, reading and most anything that'll get me out of bed. Enjoyed investing for years.
