Now retired, I was for 25 years an editor with Windhorse Publications which is now based in Cambridge. Windhorse specializes in books on Buddhism and meditation, and I contribute to articles related to Buddhism.

Before joining Windhorse I cut my teeth by transcribing seminars on Buddhism (before the days of word-processors), and working on The Catonsville Roadrunner alternative Christianity magazine, and before that I worked for Young Quaker magazine, having been brought up as a Quaker. I became a Buddhist in 1980.

Much of my time now is taken up with the production of a monthly newsletter for members of the Triratna Buddhist Order, and benchmarking as an interesting incentive to get some much-needed exercise.
