Who Am I? 10 Fun Facts

Black and white picture of a person holding up a question mark

Who’s the man behind the blog? In this post, I share 10 bite-sized insights into my life, my background, and my passions. Enjoy!

1) I’m a British national with Dutch heritage. My father is English, and my mother, who passed away in 2003, was Dutch. 🇬🇧🇳🇱

2) I have lived in the UK my entire life. I was born in Cambridge, grew up in Abingdon in Oxfordshire, and moved to London to go to university. I have stayed in London since then, though I have moved house many times. 🏠

3) In 2007, after a lengthy period of turmoil in my life, I had a breakdown and ended up in psychiatric hospital. During my time in hospital I read the Bible properly for the first time. 📖

4) I have spent time attending Anglican, Baptist, Catholic, and Evangelical churches, which has been a real blessing and opened my mind to the diversity that exists within Christianity. ✝

5) I am single, and I live in a flat on my own, which is wonderful, despite my troublesome neighbours. 🙃

6) I have a degree in Commercial Music, and have worked several jobs in the music industry promoting some very well-known bands. I also have a postgraduate qualification in Philosophy and Religion. 🎓

7) I used to play guitar in a heavy metal band named ‘Marconi’s Voodoo’. We went into the studio a few times and recorded some EPs though never an album. I still make music and have a modest home studio where I record. 🎵

8) I have worked for a few different charities and NGOs, including one job where I was a street fundraiser for Greenpeace, which involved trying to persuade members of the public to set up monthly direct debits to support clean energy production. 🌏

9) I have written several books, which expound my belief that there is a God who is in control of everything that happens in existence. 📚

10) My favourite food right now is caramelised onion hummus, and I’m about to have some (with a tasty ciabatta) for lunch. Yum! 🌮
