Orlando was born in London, in the UK. In his teens he made two international tours as a classical guitarist, before writing and producing music for film and tv.
Orlando went on to work as a consultant in broadcasting, media tech, energy, and telecoms in Europe, the US and the Middle East. Projects included the Sky platform, the ‘Digital Revolution’ for the BBC, the launch of the internet for the European Commission / G7, and a global science and technology initiative for Qatar.
His 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. Orlando has subsequently raised money for charities, campaigned for reform of the EU, stood as a candidate in the 2015 general election, and campaigned on behalf of the environment and communities in Cornwall, UK.
He writes non-fiction and fiction, and still plays guitar.
