This is the personal blog of Kev, music fan, metaller, photographer, filmmaker, baker, technician engineer, lecturer, teacher…
I am a single (and looking) man based in East Sussex, getting by with life, learning new knowledge and skills, passing on my knowledge and skills, having new experiences, meeting new people, visiting places. I try to be as eco-friendly as I can and I would rather help people than make them suffer. I am also a dietary vegan, some would use the new term plant based.
The reason I feel confident enough to do different things in my life is that I had the formation of an engineer, educated to postgrad level, including a French engineering qualification, and I am a believer in lifelong learning. I’m a qualified lecturer and TEFL teacher who currently works short contracts in both of those fields, passing on my knowledge and experience to young people. I am also a semi-professional photographer and I am starting out as a filmmaker with my business. My photos have been published in magazines, hang on walls, appear in CDs and on publicity materials. I was recently a vegan baker working with a friend as 1066 Cakestand (watch this space for our next cooking project).
I take pride in myself and my experiences. I am proud of my adopted county, East Sussex, and its traditions. I take pride in being English, British, European and a world citizen. I oppose those who corrupt pride with bigotry, authoritarianism, racism and other negativity.
What is Sussex Black? Yes, I live in Sussex and I am very much into Black Metal but it’s also the name of a Sussex recipe for a dark cake. Hopefully that’s got your tastebuds going and I will post more as a blog next time I make it.
