He developed world wide export markets for loose leaf products, video packaging and character children`s IT products.

He has witnessed at first hand the deprivation and social needs of many communities where poverty is rife.

He wanted to make a difference. He therefore volunteered for 10 weeks in Salvador, Brazil in 2008, and a further 6 weeks there in 2011, teaching young adults and caring for pre-school children.  His wonderful cultural, humbling and rewarding experiences  are the subject of his first Book: “VOLUNTEERING in BRAZIL, You can take the leap”.

 

Don has been able him to use his photographic skills extensively resulting in thirty nine vibrant colour images throughout the book that illustrates the students, the children, the culture and the surrounding environment.
