At the Artis Foundation, we love Roald Dahl, particularly because of his creative use of language in all of his books. He knew how much children love them, not only because they sound fun but because they can work them out as they often sound like a word they know.
Writing As we all know, writing, of course, is one of my hobbies. I'm not quite sure what made me want to give up my dream of being a doctor, but I'm glad I did. Making up stories just comes so naturally to me.
My children would beg and beg me over and over again to tell them a bedtime story, and eventually I would give in.
They say that if you love what you do, you never have to work a day in your life. There was this game called fives, that I was exceptionally good at.
The version we played, eton-fives, consisted of four players, two on a team, and they'd play by hitting a small, leather covered ball with their gloved hand.
We took this game very seriously. I became so skilled in this game that I won both the junior and senior school fives, both in the same year. Soon enough, I was "Captain of the Fives.
Photography One of my passions is photography. I was the only boy at Repton who took photography seriously. I set up a small black room for myself in the back of the music room. I made great friends with Arthur Norris, our Arts teacher, who mostly kept to himself.
We'd talk about paintings and painters and just have a real good time. He helped exhibit my photographs one year, and it was a marvelous success. I even won myself a medal with the picture I took of the Arch of Ctesiphon.
