About Alan

I’m Alan Howarth

Writing, photography, TV and video production are my strengths, especially the way in which they can help your marketing and business communications. I have an appetite for variety – have done all my life. But that’s a big plus if we work together.

Every day is a new day; I’m always fresh and excited, always ready for any challenge.

Brief Bio.

Childhood: Born Cromer, Norfolk.

Don’t remember a lot: I was told off for pulling tail off rocking horse when I started school (4 years old), missed the school bus and walked 1-mile home on my 5th birthday, everyone was waiting for me, or were they really waiting for jelly and blancmange? Last time I was there, June 2010, hardly anything had changed, though everything seem much smaller than I recall!

Age 5 Moved to Luton, Bedfordshire.

Junior School, Wolf Cubs, Bike Rides, Wardown Park Lake for sticklebacks, First girlfriend, Rosa Brown.

Age 11 Moved to Newgate Street, Hertfordshire.

I’m just a country boy! Running through fields and woods, listening to 45’s always with Mick, best mate, or Jennifer, first love. She dumped me when I was 15, she went off with John, he was 3 years older and had a Lambretta, with lots of lights and an aerial. I was desolate, but she made the right choice, they’re still together, but without the Lambretta.

And then?

Left school, left Newgate Street, learnt to hitch hike, spent a few years saying things like “Far Out Man” , busking badly, and spreading peace and love to the best of my ability, got married, split up, met Julia, lost Julia, wonder what she’s doing now? I even saw England win the World Cup. Over the next several years I hit the highs, had four children, hit the lows when the 90’s recession bit my bum along with a few creditors, but in those days you paid your debts, and I did too.

It’s a brilliant life, so far, just out of my third (and final) marriage, four children, five grandchildren – I’ve tasted fame (received mail to Alan Howarth, England) I’ve tasted failure (collapse of one business and three marriages) but I’ve never given up, cos’ I’m an optimistic kind of guy . . . . . . and I’ve always got A Head Full of Ideas.
