Foraging Author
I'm the multi best-selling author of a bunch of books. Two contain foraging recipes and advice - Booze for Free and Fermenting Everything.

I run Bespoke foraging, food and/or booze events; examples include wild cocktails & cheese matching, gin making (civilized hen/stag nights and event birthdays), wild beer tasting, after dinner talks. Private parties and Corperate clients welcome.

Clients include - international drinks companies, BBC, Discovery Channel, Remy Martin & Diageo.

Consultancy for international drinks & TV companies.

I'm interested in every aspect of foraging from micro to macro. Currently following interests in bacteria & terpenes and now where it fits with habitat, weather and wildlife.

and... Cerys Matthews once told me I was a "Dangerous man to know" - possibly due to my ability to make very strong alcohol taste like fizzy pop.

On a more personal level I was bitten by the bug after seeing chickweed growing on my Action man den down the bottom of my parent's garden in a small pine woodland and hooked on the natural world ever since.
