I was born and raised in England, but after going to school in Paris, I began globetrotting, so that I have been more than 80 countries so far.... One day, I came sailing in Gocek in the South of Turkey and fell in love with Gocek bay. So I bought some lands in the wooded hills above the sea, planted a garden, a vineyard and began building stone houses for me and my friends. I also have dogs, donkeys and owls. My philosophy is of the Epicurian school, which I believe is the secret of a happy life free of fear and worry. I read the works of the ancients and enjoy rambling around the ruins scattered around Southern Turkey. But all cultures fascinate me. I look forward to enjoying my beautiful garden with you and am open to all skills and talents that can make life better.
