About Tim Newman

I was born in 1977 and grew up just outside Pembroke in south-west Wales. Between 1996 and 2000 I studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of Manchester. In 2003 I was offered the opportunity of 5 weeks work in Oman, which I took and never came home. Since then I lived in Kuwait, UAE, Russia, Thailand, Nigeria, Australia, and France working in the oil and gas industry, which I quit in 2018 to study for an MBA in Geneva.

I share social commentary, my views on politics, and other subjects at my blog White Sun of the Desert. In January 2018 I self-published my first book Window on a Burning Man, and am currently writing another. In October 2018 I launched my podcast (available on iTunes here).
