Personal Profile

I worked as a cartoonist on a newspaper before going to University. My father told me to get a proper job, so I studied medicine. I still draw when I get time. I keep chickens and enjoy watching rugby. I am an avid Tigers supporter but still shout for South Africa when they play England!
