I graduated from UCLan (University of Central Lancashire) with a degree in Physics & Astronomy and gained employment as a Meteorologist/Physicist with the British Antarctic Survey, work that included a two-year tour of duty in Antarctica. After returning to the UK I became a Fingerprint Officer working at New Scotland Yard in London. Finding this work to be both monotonous and stressful I decided to return to meteorology. After acquiring a Met Office postgraduate qualification I found work in the Middle East as a Marine Forecaster, providing forecasts for the oil industry on wind and sea states in the Arabian Gulf, forecasts that were occasionally correct.
