He worked as an integrative medical doctor for 20 years and having seen a lot of cancer patients and offering them supportive therapies he then undertook a PhD in Cancer research . His funding ran out and so he left the research work and went to the first carbon farming conference in 2004. He became acutely aware of the devastating effects of climate change and developed a huge interest in Carbon farming and how to best sequester carbon in the soil .

Seeing opportunities in Zambia after the democratic elections in 1990 I moved to Zambia and obtained 3000ha tribal lands that I have converted into a conservancy. It is here that I developed Soil Bio-Muti as a soil remedy looking at what is being done in the world and how things work in nature.
