I studied the history of Whitechapel/Spitafields in an intensive one year course under Professor William J Fishman, a Senior Research Fellow of Queen Mary ' s University, I was fortunate indeed as Professor Fishman had grown up in the East End and provided an inside view of this most interesting area.

I started doing Jack the Ripper ' walking tours in the mid-nineties and have been carrying these out ever since then. Over these years I have researched Jack the Ripper and examined most of the most famous theories and have now formed a personal opinion of the type of man 'Jack' must have been. I have a theory that answers the two most important questions. How was he able to extract organs rapidly, sometimes in the dark? How was he able to escape bloodstained through the crowded streets?

I have also appeared in various documentaries e.g. For The Discovery Channel. It happened here ' . For Histories Mysteries Jack the Ripper ' . For Carlton TV Shift - A short examination of the tale of Jack the Ripper ' . For The Electric Theatre Company Unmasking Jack the Ripper ' . For Phare Ouest (a French TV company) 'A la poursuite de Jack l ' Eventreur ' this appeared on France Deux and other TV stations around Europe.

I also wrote the script for and narrated the story of Jack the Ripper for One World Radio which was broadcast on Halloween one year.

I have also just completed a Level 2 in Tourism and was awarded 3 credits at Level 2 from the Open College Network in July 2010 and am at present studying at the University of Westminster to complete my Clerkenwell and Islington Guiding Qualification.
