My strange journey through life !
I am from Wales, grew up in Australia spent 25 years in the US and raised 2 Sons as a single Dad.
I was a cowboy at 13 in Queensland on a ranch bigger than most towns,milked a bunch of cows by hand and rounded up the horses. then at 15 the youngest reporter in Australia with a Melbourne newspaper a top British dj in America in Chicago at the peak of the British invasion.Also introducing bands like the Stones at their concerts.
I took my boys all over the World when they were just 6&7...raised them in showbiz performing live magic and escape shows in shopping centers and on tv later creating a comic book based on our family.
My oldest Son and I boated from Miami to Bimini in a 33 foot Chriscraft...it caught fire in one engine 13 miles out an we had to call the coastguard...later we almost sank when the bilge pumps got clogged....boating can be dangerous !
We bought and sold classic cars in California in the 70's
at times we were so broke we slept in tents and campgrounds...but we always got back on our feet again and at xmas painted shop windows all over America also
fluorescent signs at 100's of car dealerships then we made lotsa dough ! Later we lived in motorhomes parking at Walmarts rent free that saved a bunch !
We now live in Tokyo my oldest Son owns a successful vehicle export business and at 73 then some I just help out wherever I can...I haven't slowed down though and am hoping to raise small budgets to make some movies...I write my own screenplays.
We have also done charity parades with our classic cars for Lions clubs.
When the big quake and tsunami happened here I broadcast to over 50 million viewers and listeners on Worldwide stations...didn't get paid but sure made my mark in the media lol.......
Overall it's been a hectic ride.....but hardly dull !
