I’m an award short-listed author and broadcaster experienced in bringing to life historical topics for mass audiences.
Recent TV appearances have included an interview with Jamie Theakston about the Templars on Yesterday TV’s Forbidden History and over the summer, I was filming in Portugal with the History Channel.
I combine an enthusiastic passion for history with a well-kept luxuriant beard! And a website to prove it.
