Chap in the Hat grew up in a pub in an English village. So, the doors of his house, mind and heart are always open.

He moved to Japan after getting married, and now spends his days teaching, researching, writing and shooting.

He loves people in all their crazy hues.

He dreams of a house in the mountains where he can step from his porch straight on to the trails, and grow veggies in his back yard.

He wants a whippet. But will probably never have one.

He goes by the name of Tim.
