I travel the UK providing bespoke training in the new UK Education Computing curriculum, offering tailored packages covering Programming concepts, Python, Scratch and the Raspberry Pi.

I am based in Blackpool, in the Northwest of the UK and I champion a number of IT based groups for children and adults.

I am also the organiser of Barcamp Blackpool and co-organiser of Oggcamp, events which promote social interaction of the "geek" communities.

In my spare time I enjoy photography especially of my local area.
