Born in Scotland.
Studied at art college in England (Bath Academy of Art) and was later invited to Brazil by Museum of Modern Art (Rio de Janeiro), on a scholarship. Built my own house in Rio.
I teach at the School of Visual Arts in Rio de Janeiro and lecture around the country to universities, cultural Institutions and companies, on "Creative Thinking and Problem Solving". At present writing a book on the subject.
I am also Director of "Dynamic Encounters" International Art Workshops, project involved in interviewing creative personalities around the world.
My main hobby (non educational) is boatbuilding and sailing.
I build wooden sailing boats and sail around the Guanabara Bay area.
Others hobbies include reading and research, building my house. Hobbies are so tied up with work that it's kind of difficult to separate them.
