A little background

I started a blog – Another Flamin’ Blog – at the end of 2007 when, frankly, everyone was doing it. Hence the name. Since then of course billions more blogs have been created and many have withered on the vine. It made sense to move all those posts across to this site, though my posting is as sporadic as ever.

I’ve been close to killing the site on more than one occasion given my lack of writing. But every now and then an old post comes in handy so I’ve never pushed the delete button. Plus I fancied somewhere to put some of my photos that wasn’t Instagram.

The content of this site reflects the content of me.  That mean a broad and eclectic range of subjects and a perspective which I’m fairly certain is of little interest to anyone else.

I’m a dad, British by birth but have lived in France for more than 17 years. I love photography, glorious old cars, sport, funny stuff on TV and film, nice food and drink…standard middle-aged things.

Professionally I’m the managing director, Europe, at The Hoffman Agency, a global public relations and marketing consultancy.

For more detail you can have a look at my LinkedIn profile. You can find my Twitter profile here, and I’m on Instagram here. You can email me on mark (dot) pinsent (at) gmail (dot) com.

Thanks for stopping by.
