About me

Rest

Having done web development at various companies, I finally decided to create my own website. The initial source of this website was my Facebook profile.

And so the process of creating this website began. You can read all about how I moved my data from Facebook to WordPress. All the code is freely available on GitHub for anyone to use if they want to do the same.

Play

Here, in no particular order, are some of my interests: hiking; travel; fitness (especially running and swimming); films (obscure and popular); food and nutrition; evidence-based science; taking photos of people, places and nature; drawing; listening to podcasts; and reading – both fiction and non-fiction. I’ve recently started learning about AI/machine learning. Of course, this is all pretty generic but I’ll be writing about these and more.

Work

I’ve worked in retail, government, aviation and finance for many years as an IT developer, systems architect and CTO. Although managing people and budgets are interesting, I’m especially passionate about software development, even before I studied maths and computing at university.

Thanks for dropping by.
