About the Author

As a writer, Jack has been producing material for 21 years now. Most of his output has been web-based, academic, reference or project-based deliveries. As of 2018, Jack is developing his own voice as an author. That voice is based on a range of experiences in life which do not speak of the ordinary. Jack has been involved with indigenous communities, been homeless, been walking long distances and travelled through many different landscapes and cultures. In this journey, he has used the ideas of Comparative Mythology as his compass and has navigated a way through a life of strange contradictions. In his career he has been a barman, a washing up person in a commercial kitchen, an insurance broker, a travel agent, a salesman, a small holding farmer, a caretaker in an east London tower block, a theatre porter in an abortion clinic, a support worked with profoundly disabled young adults, a personal carer for a tetraplegic man and a jobbing gardener. He studied at Ruskin College, Oxford and Girton College, Cambridge, he is a Churchill Fellow and he has worked with academics in Universities in the UK and beyond. Jack founded and ran the original HumanRightsTV, a project much copied by others, and in that work addressed a range of subjects in which he had the fortune to be mentored by leading experts in their fields. He has been an invited guest speaker at a conference sponsored by the United Nations in Mexico, the opening speaker at a conference in Tunisia and after speaking at the Queensland University of Technology was placed on the preferred speaker list. He is also a popular after dinner speaker. However, for Jack, such things are of much smaller importance than the well-being of the people around him. Jack's own personal happiness is to be found in his gardens, his library and in the kitchen where he cooks for his wife and his friends. In his world, life is about eating good food, being with friends and family and working at tasks you love. Jack does not own a smartphone or a television.
