I have been honoured to have been the Chairman of the Anglo Chilean Society from 2016 to 2022 having previously been on the Executive Committee for more than 20 years. Highlights have included organising the dinner for the visit of President Frei Montalva and the recent 75th anniversary dinner in the presence of HRH The Princess Royal.
My involvement with Chile stemmed from a degree in Latin American studies which included a year at University in Chile. I then went on to study documentary making at USC in Los Angeles before returning to Chile to work on a TV production. I spent 20 years making documentaries and travel programmes around the world including in Chile. I also much of many years restoring a ‘masia’ in Eastern Spain which is now run as a boutique hotel. In my remaining time I have served 25 years in the Army Reserve. I married Gayle in 2015 and we have a daughter Edomé. I have been very lucky to have been able to return to Chile on many occasions for work and pleasure and to enjoy the company of so many wonderful friends.
