Executive Producer, Pilot & Presenter
Robert is Canadian by birth and now an author settled in rural Scotland.
Robert’s knowledge, enthusiasm and determination add greatly to the dynamics of our team. He joined Project Josephine close to the point where we made the decision to fly Spitfire ‘Josephine‘ from Takoradi to Singapore.
Robert made his living on, below or off the high seas for the majority of his working life. He was a pioneer saturation oil field diver working all over the world including the North Sea in the dangerous 1970s and early 80s.
His first book Chasing Black Gold tells the astonishing true story of a decade in his life smuggling diesel fuel in West Africa.
He wrote Chasing Black Gold under the nom de plume Robert Stone to prevent embarrassing his children or family, but his children are now old enough to understand his past.
Now reformed, trying to be an example to his children and currently working on his second non-fiction book, his ultimately positive survival story proves that it is possible to turn your life around at any stage.
