Born in Llanboidy parish, Carmarthenshire, Wales. Ph.D. in Physics at University College Swansea. Spent ten years with the U.K. Atomic Energy Authority before becoming a Physics teacher at Llandovery College, Carmartheshire.

In retirement he has delved into local history and has just completed a 130,000 word manuscript on the life and times of WRH Powell, the radical Squire who became MP for Carmarthenshire from 1880 to 1889. Hopes to get it published sooner or later.
