Born in a small village in the north east of England im now a long way from home and currently living in Geneva Switzerland. I still keep my enthusiasm for cycling and in September 2013 cycled across Switzerland.

I have spent over 10 years working at CERN in Geneva Switzerland. The majority of this time was developing an electronic document handling system (EDH) which scientists from around the globe use for a multitute of reasons. EDH Automates a full range of CERN administrative process "from hiring to firing": recruitment, vacations, appraisals, purchasing, logistics, training, safety. EDH is most heavily used administrative software application at CERN. As you can imagine with over 16'500 active users and over 320'000 electronic documents processed every year, it keeps us quite busy!

I also love travelling in my 1978 VW campervan (see background) making the most of living in central Europe and learning the ukulele. I'm also currently listening to all the podcasts 'serial' related.
