about Dean Thorpe: Introduction
So who is Dean Thorpe?
An obsessed photographer who hates going a single day without taking photos!
A poet, I love writing poetry, I find it a great way of releasing my feelings, something I need to do more!
A web designer, I used to run many web sites, most of which were 100% hand coded HTML, these days I cheat and use good software to do it for me and my only site is this one!
A very alternative person with bright hair, tattoos and piercings.
I was a voluntary worker, I have done voluntary work everywhere from mental health charities to zoos!
A disabled person, see further down this page for more on that.
My real name is Dean Thorpe, I do go by a few nick names on various sites, but that is my real one.
I am male-ish (Well I was last time I checked! lol), although to me gender is something that can be rather fluid! ;)
I am in my mid 40's, but with the mind of an 18 year old (ok maybe an 8 year old sometimes!), but I seem to feel like a 80 year old!
I'm a very open and honest person, anything you want to know, just ask!!!
These days everything I do is unpaid voluntary photography work, but not as much of that as I used to do. In the past I have facilitated support groups, taught photography, volunteered as a zookeeper to name a few of the volunteer jobs I've done. I do keep myself busy with my photography, working on this web site, writing poetry, drawing and other creative things like that. When I was younger and healthier I did various work including software development, freelance technical support, working in a call centre and even working in McDonalds for a few weeks!!!
Just ask!!! I am a VERY open and honest person (it gets me into trouble sometimes!), as long as you don't want something silly like my bank PIN number, then the chances I will tell you the truth!!! :) BTW My PIN number is four digits long and all the numbers are between 0 and 9, see, I even answered that! lol
Some photos I couldn't descide which page to put on as they would have been correctly placed on more than one, so they do show up more than once :)
Want to know a lot more?
Why say so much?
So, why have I posted so much information about myself?
I have nothing to hide, so if anybody ever did want to know about me then this is a good place to start, plus I am always willing to answer questions too.
Posting information is not always a good idea, always be careful what you do post.
I hope that by posting this information it will help others, not everybody is in a situation where they can be open about themselves, especially about their mental health, sexuality and so on.
Everything on here I am very open about, which is why it's on here! So no point trying to be nasty about any of it, everybody I care about accepts me and that is all that matters to me! :)
