This is my homepage, blog, site, or whatever you want to call it. I’m unlikely to post things here that often; I’m more likely to write on Medium or elsewhere.

First, my apologies: I know this site is weak. Sorry about that. I had a Wordpress-based site that I rarely updated, containing a lot of material that was rapidly becoming out-of-date. I was tempted to take the interesting stuff and paste it here, but after reviewing I realised none of it was really relevant anymore.

So, a clean start.

On the other hand, I’ve got a lot of other things to do, so I haven’t spent any effort doing this placeholder site either. Please don’t take the paucity of this site as a sign of what I’m capable of: I’ve made some very nice websites in the past, but it’s part of my day job so doing some more of it for a site no-one’s going to look at (except you) isn’t exactly my highest priority.

About me

I’m a geek living in Portishead, England, working at Starberry as their Chief Techie: a varied role, from strategic to technical, getting my hands dirty with development, architecture, documentation, training, operations, and just about a bit of everything really; working with a large team of talented developers and telling them they’re doing it wrong, ie. not the way I’d do it.

In my spare time, I geek out on various tech projects when I have the time, on a wide range of bits and pieces. I also watch a lot of movies.

Please don’t bother contacting me if you want to recruit me or add me to a database of people you want to get other people to recruit: I’m happy where I’m working.

Interesting (geek) stuff I’m doing


So yeah. I’m a ruddy social butterfly, me. One of these days I might actually pad one of those out a bit. Don’t hold your breath, though.

Saying that, I’m very personable and friendly, and if you say Hi, I’ll be happy to take time to talk… as long as you’re not a recruiter or a spammer, of course. I’m just apathetic about writing websites for “fun”.

In the meantime, here’s a picture I drew on my iPad.
