He’s interested in whale conservation, and has been since long before it became fashionable – he has worked for Friends of the Earth as a volunteer, and remains a member of Greenpeace.

Outside work and travel, he enjoys are cooking, looking at paintings (from Giotto to Jackson Pollock and beyond), and playing the clarinet (badly). He paints a bit and draws cartoons, but only for his own amusement, as he’s pretty bad at them too.
