“My main pursuit in life is spending time with my family (2 young daughters), however I have always been an avid reader and try to read as much as possible.  Throughout my life I have kept fit by taking part in badminton, football, running, hiking and weight training training and enjoyed the experience of running my own football teams, though my time is mainly restricted to gardening and growing my own vegetables.

I am eager to try useful technology, having used Raspberry Pi’s for a few years, working with Linux, building my own computers and helping people with their issues.  Keeping my skills up to date is important to me, so I’m often up late trying my hand on web design, programming or learning about networking.

I have been the proud owner of a classic piece of British motoring (MGB GT) and still very passionate towards this era of motoring.”
