About Me

I worked in this glorious part of Spain for over 11 years – from hosting a local radio programme to founding both a magazine and newspaper for English speakers in the region. Always the aim was to give people a better insight into the fascinating eastern Málaga region, something that, along with my wife Julie, we now aim to continue with our website.
