This is the bizarre story of how he ever got to start his legal career.

This is how a little boy from Llanelli in West Wales with a unique zest for life won a

scholarship to a Public School; ended up Head boy but narrowly avoided being expelled;

won a scholarship to read civil engineering at Bristol then switched to law at Cardiff

where he narrowly avoided being sent down; worked offshore in the North Sea in the Oil

Exploration Industry as a roughneck on the drilling floor and witnessed the tragic death of

a work colleague; went on to work as a Drilling Fluids Engineer in Louisiana and Texas
