Born in Llanelwy, North Wales. Dai grew up in the small coastal town of Flint, famous for its thirteenth century castle. After graduating from Leeds University with a Mining Engineering degree, he spent the next seven years living and working (sometimes four kilometers underground) in Southern Africa. This was followed by spells in California and London.
He now resides in beautiful Colorado but returns to Wales as often as possible to visit family and soak up the indefinable atmosphere of the land of his birth.
