    About me

    Rick is 59; a simple Yorkshireman with a mild accent (I spent many years in London), who got into this industry by accident. He developed a niche market for small, fat, hairy ginger bloke but the hair has now disappeared, mostly.

    My interests

    I have been out of the industry for a long time and am now dipping my toe back into the pond.
