I retired from the oil industry in 2001. I worked mainly in sales and marketing and during that time traveled extensively around the world. Since then I have been involved in negotiation consultancy focusing mainly on training. I am very interested in cooking and in recent years cook at least four meals a week for my wife and I. Unfortunately I am still not very creative so have to follow recipes to the letter. I still enjoy traveling although security processes make it somewhat of a hassle. As far as sport is concerned I follow rugby union and play a lousy game of golf.
