My Wife Maria and 2 kids Megan 15 and William 13 live in Plymouth. I spent 11 years in the Royal Marines and spent a lot of that in Norway and other cold climates. I taught at the ski school as an MST. I became a commercial diver before heading back into the security business where I spent 3 years on the Al Fayed security team before coming to Algeria to work in the Oil and Gas industry. I work in Southern Algeria and have been here for 15 years.Unfortunately my Family are not allowed to visit Algeria due to the security risk so I visit them in the UK when I am not away on trips.
