I was born in England in 1967, lived in Malaysia from 1976-1978 then moved to America for 10 years from 1983-1993. During this time, I graduated from KHS, then went to SFA and transferred to North Caroline where I graduated from UNCC in 1989. Two years at Infiniti then a banking career at Bank of America in Charlotte and onto London's financial centre called the City (like Wall St). I spent almost a decade at Moody's before quitting to take a sabbatical in India (5 months) and all over South America (8 months). I managed to see my 100th country in 2009 which was a life goal of mine since I love travel. I own the world's largest collection of supersonic Concorde artefacts and have now turned entrepreneurial. Besides renovating and developing properties in Fulham, London, I am busy building world-changing internet platforms. Watch this space! I just finally got married in July 2015 to a gorgeous woman from Prague, Czech Republic. Next is family and to buy a place in the sun :)

School Story:

I came to Texas as a shy 16 year old. America changed me for the better as it gave me confidence to aspire and be somebody, to live the American dream. You have a great attitude in the States of everything is possible, a real can do feeling.

While being made to read out aloud a paragraph in an English class at KHS, I ended with full stop. Someone shouted out he means period! An embarrassing moment for a young man with a funny accent!

Best KHS or Kingwood Memory:

Let the Good Times roll by the Cars! Concerts, baseball and football at the Houston Astrodome. And of course keg parties all over Kingwood, or Kegwood as it was known. Oh and big Texas steaks and 10 gallon hats. Go Mustangs!!
