I worked in the defence and security area for more than thirty years, in the service of two governments as well as in think-tanks and international organisations. I retired early at the end of 2008, to concentrate on academic work, which had started as a hobby, but was by then threatening
to take over my life.

I'm now an independent author, lecturer, translator and consultant based in France. This website is essentially a collection of my writings on various subjects, and it began as a reaction to the many requests I got after giving lectures for copies of things I had written. As a result of a number of more recent requests, I have started to add a collection of videos.

You can also read my occasional blog here.
