I blog, I write for papers, and I give talks and after-dinner speeches. You want a humorous talk? I may be your guy.
For the rest, I walk a lot, cycle, take photos, paint badly and spend too much time on twitter and facebook. I'm an enthusiastic home brewer of wine and beer - and to scare the uninitiated, I am also a Morris dancer with Tinners' Morris.
