Born 1948 in Norwich, Norfolk. Worked as a waiter in my early days, and later in Human Resources. I have also done some amateur script writing and poetry as extracurricular activities. I had a stroke in 2011 when I was 63. I have since been retired. I joined Rosetta life in 2016 and have been a stroke ambassador ever since. Writing and performing with other stroke ambassadors we have found comradeship and been able to share our experiences.
