Jack Cox was born in Hampshire and has had successful careers as a freelance writer, photographer and life coach. Now retired, Jack devotes his time and energies helping to build a better, more loving, more tolerant and more sustainable world for loving, tolerant and broad-minded people everywhere.
He took his first photography post while still at school, just a holiday job in a photographic retailer and darkroom. That was the summer of 1966.
On leaving school in 1967 he worked as a photographic assistant in a portrait and wedding studio before moving on to a commercial studio specialising in images for packaging. These posts gave him a through training in what has been a life-long passion.
However he took a six year break from photography and journalism, joining the Royal Signals in 1971.
Later, at the age of 30, he spent 4 years at Greenwich University gaining a BSc in Environmental Science with a view to entering the field of environmental journalism. But first some practical experience working for the Royal Society For The Protection of Birds (RSPB) on a reserve in Norfolk and for a private nature reserve in Somerset.
In 1995, following the death of his girlfriend from thyroid cancer, he decided he needed a change of scenery and moved to Spain where he worked as a travel photographer for 17 very happy years. It was while in Spain that Jack, always eager for new challenges, qualified as a life coach.
Jack has always had a heightened sense or fairness and justice and an unshakable belief that humankind is capable of building a better society that works for everyone, not just the globalist elite. It is this faith in human potential that led him to found the Towards Utopia movement - www.towards-utopia.org
