Greetings everyone! My name is Mike and I guess you could say I've been around.
My background in business includes lengthy service on the financial and admin side of the petrochemical industry, and a fascinating spell in long haul transport and logistics, both of which were mainly in central and southern Africa. Doing business in Africa is interesting to say the least! When I tired of working for big corporations, I tried my hand in the hospitality and tourism field by way of a pet-friendly guest farm, and a travel website focused on the Mediterranean island of Mallorca. I currently live in Scotland, so you can see I like to travel!
I've always played a variety of sports, but these days I'm pretty much limited to golf, for which Scotland is famous, and I actually live in a stone cottage on a golf course - it sounds great, but there are distractions .... (Breaking news: we've just moved house and I now have to drive to the golf course)
I was just the right age to see the personal computer era from the beginning (OK, I'm quite old) and have enjoyed growing along with it and the internet. That Mallorca travel website taught me a few things, one of which was how to lose money - hopefully that experience won't be repeated. As I'm currently looking for a new challenge, I can't wait to embrace WA to mutual benefit.
