I was born and bred in Newcastle and originally had a Geordie accent. I took a wrong turn off the Felling bypass and have the privilege of becoming a travelling Geordie working around Britain and the USA. I lost my accent in the US after having to keep explaining to people where it was that I learnt English.

Came back home and have had the privilege of working for some great companies in the UKs second silicon roundabout

I love anything to-do with technology, particularly exploring new ideas and solutions.

I am not bad on a five string banjo and pretty funky on a bass guitar.
