As a young man I studied theoretical physics for a number of years but I have had no more than an amateur interest since and would not claim to have kept up with recent developments. My longest stretch in settling to anything was as an artist. A generous person would now regard me as a renaissance man, a shrewd one would recognise a dilettante.
I am married with two children and live for the most part in rural Suffolk, England, on a plot shared with horses and chickens.
I now work for an old endowed charity, manipulating assets to achieve the best return and trying to develop innovative and effective ways to distribute the funds to the least fortunate.
