About Me


I have enjoyed three careers.  First, I was a human rights lawyer, often representing tenants against their landlords and homeless people.  Then, I became a judge, initially a district judge trying civil cases, but later a circuit judge, largely trying criminal cases (jury trials involving serious offences).  As a judge, I was a member of the Judicial Studies Board/Judicial College and became a senior judicial trainer, both in this country and abroad.  But throughout my life I have written and photographed.  Now that I am no longer a judge, I am combining three of the passions of my life - photography, writing and judicial training.
