Golfspice (Street Articles Author)

I started off writing about golf, hence the username, however, I am now branching out and writing about other interests.

I have always enjoyed sport and cannot imagine life without it. My first love was playing football (soccer), then squash and now a fascination with the challenges of golf, which takes up most weekends. Other interests include travel, photography and writing among other things, which are all time consuming pastimes, but great fun and highly satisfying.

Perhaps online writing will lead to a blog(s) or website(s), though not necessarily about golf. The site(s) will be popular, self-financing and one day make Golfspice a millionaire. See, golfers do have a sense of humour or humor, depending on where in the world that you live.

Professionally, I have more than 30 years experience in highways maintenance, project management, bid management and writing.
