Orlando was born in London, in the UK. In his teens, he toured as a classical guitarist before writing and producing music for film and tv.
He went on to advise worldwide on communications in Europe and the Middle East, including major projects for the BBC, Sky, the European Commission / G7, and the State of Qatar.
Orlando's interest in ethics, as the vital centre of all organizations, began when he successfully defended himself in a major legal action against a corporate bully. He has subsequently campaigned for reform of the EU, stood as a candidate in the 2015 general election, and worked on behalf of local communities and the environment.
He writes non-fiction and fiction, and lives in Cornwall in the south west of the UK.
