Unlike many other about.me pages here, there’s no fancy photos; I’m not into advertising, nor am I photographer or graphic or interior designer. But it does share an area of creativity, and that's where I come in.

Firstly, what do I do...? Well I have a job; computer software stuff, and the best bit about my role is it’s varied, which suits me to the ground. I’m able to learn and understand a range of technologies and then apply them to be creative in my ideas and solutions.

My head's full of technical knowledge, useless, but it's enough for most people. I am however part of an exceptional team, which I'm fortunate enough to be a part of, and we believe we have the next big thing.

There's also that great satisfaction and great sense of accomplishment when it all works out, and that's what we all have in common.

I enjoy being creative, from pencil scribbles to a finished project, not only in work but more importantly outside the office.

If you can’t get hold of me then I can be found in the Lake District, enjoying the windswept fells or a pub, with warm open fire. It’s a great escape from computer screens.

I have a huge fascination with the Universe. I'm no astronaut or physicist for that matter, but designing the next 'hyperdrive' to send us across the milky way, and a bit further, would be great... so put me down for a bit of that.
