Yours trulyWho is Richard? I'm an old git bloke who has lived most of his life in Basingstoke and still dreams of escape.

In my time I've been a:

  • lorry driver
  • window cleaner
  • bank clerk
  • CNC programmer / machinist
  • barman
  • web developer
  • and last - but not necessarily least - a driving instructor.

My better half (Tina) has put up with me for more years than she cares to remember. We have two lovely children, one of each - both getting on themselves, now. No grandchildren yet... :(

The people I've taught to drive come from all parts of the world and all walks of life - meeting you all is one of the most rewarding parts of my job.

When not working I like to spend time with family and friends, take photographs, cycle, run, walk, play with websites, eat good food, travel as much as possible, and make the most of my time here on planet earth.
