Terry is an 86 year old retired R & D scientist, having spent 28 years in the glass Industry, 20 years in the water industry and 6 years as a Waste Management Consultant and University lecturer.
After smoking strong cigarettes for 69 years he was diagnosed with COPD and quickly transferred to vaping. Terry has spent the last five years researching the effects on his lungs and also acting as an advocate for electronic cigarettes, disseminating the results of his findings, world-wide, in an attempt to counter the many instances of poor and misleading information in the media.
In 2017 he felt honoured when he was able to meet Hon Lik – the inventor of the modern e-cigarette - at the Global Forum on Nicotine, and to thank him in person for the device which had improved the quality and length of his remaining life.
