“When you can think of nothing else but writing…then you are a writer!” – Somebody said that!
As well as other life’s passions, writing has become one of my cornerstones which I turn to time and time again. It not only helps me communicate my thoughts but helps me to relate to the world in which I live.
Often limited to occupational themes in aviation, I started formulating ideas once in adult life, however writing in its simplest form was within me since as a child, either as poetry, lyrics or short stories.
Much of my early writing has disappeared as with the dust of passing time, however suffice to say most would be considered either educational or industry literature.
Multiple passions form other cornerstones…Motorcycling, Arts and Football. As a rider since a boy, and due to my experience in the emergency services dealing with motorcycling accidents, I founded and operated HELI BIKES – Motorcycle Safety Initiative which was my focus for nearly 10yrs and which demanded seemingly mountains of original literature.
As a separate entity I founded and published a motorcycle magazine that fused safety & medical principles with motorcycling lifestyles. ‘The Lancelot’ had a short lifespan but was the impetus for the next publishing project.
I formed DURO RIDER Media which published online content and a motorcycle magazine; DURO RIDER Gazette. This project lasted for nearly four years and was a mixture of motorcycling lifestyles, arts and biking cultures. It became an all consuming affair in which I quickly morphed into the ‘everyman’ of the magazine; publisher, editor, writer, photographer and artist. The magazine was content driven and designed to break down barriers and convention whilst helping to promote artists and writers from the motorcycling world…it had limited success but was a project that I was most proud to be involved with.
After the magazine was wound down, I published a collected works and also a book of collected poems, some of which appeared in the publication and a photo book of a favourite city of mine; New York.
More recently I have returned to one of my original life passions; Football and especially West Ham United. I have written columns for various blog and media sites, but now focus my football writing for IRONS UNITED and my weekly YouTube West Ham football shows: ‘West Ham Grumble’ and ‘West Ham Oi Oi’, whilst also working on my next literary project…perhaps one day I will finish that too.
However, if I’m not writing or making football videos, then it’s more than likely I’ll be on my motorbike…riding into the unknown and trying to make it out the other side in one piece. I am creating motorcycle content on a daily basis for my YouTube/RevelatorAlf and there are new shows being developed all the time. There are playlists such as ‘Riding Times’ which catalogue all of the latest trail rides…and ‘Biker’s Travelog’ in which I explore the back roads, dirt trails and unusual places…and of course I’ll be writing about it too on this blog.
Writing and photography have always been precious to me, however since making videos over recent years, it has become the medium I am most involved with and incorporates both writing and photographic elements which I really enjoy too.
Most recently I have started to produce exclusive content on my YouTube/RevelatorAlf channel aswell as on Cocoscope and on Patreon channels too. Whilst still focussed on the motorcycle theme, there is more varied content now to suit a wider audience too. In addition I have also started to create podcasts on SoundCloud/RevelatorAlf which are also available on Spotify/RevelatorAlf and on iTunes/RevelatorAlf, as well as continue to write blog posts as often as possible.
This all takes a lot of creative time and is all available for free for the most part, so any support given to continue this process would be very much appreciated also.
Enjoy The Show
