Martin Leggett's bio


"Hailing from the east of England, I've lived long enough to be able to look back, but not long enough to stop relishing what life still has to throw at me.

Along the way I've packed under my belt the experiences of geologist, smallholder, software developer, winemaker, business analyst, and wild food connoisseur.

As a freelance writer, I have taken pride in writing about issues that can make a real difference in our increasingly challenged world."
