Profile I was born in Birmingham, England. Educated at Cambridge and studied Microbiology and Clinical Biochemistry. In 1980 visited India to travel for six months and in 1981 had a private audience with His Holiness Dalai Lama and stayed in Dharamsala to establish a medical laboratory at the Tibetan Delek Hospital. In 2006 I retired to Dharamsala, India, where I now live permanently. Spend my time studying Buddhism, writing, travelling and playing music.
