Rhondda-born Wynford trained as a journalist and worked on several newspapers before switching career and moving into public relations. He has worked for several large companies and for some years led a large communications team in a multi-utility company.

His wide-ranging experience covers working in the city of London and managing very large sponsorships. In 2001 he co-founded Warwick Emanuel PR Ltd, which focused on utilities, inward investment and crisis management. A Welsh-speaker, he is now semi-retired and lives in Cardiff.

Wynford is a keen writer and has just published a 'rip-roaring' adventure story entitled 1692: Pirate Dawn.

Wynford may not be a pirate in real life, but he is a keen diver, having explored the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean and the coast around Sardinia.
