My passion is Computing and Technology, I am heavily involved with the North West Linux and Open Source Community. I have been using a Linux Operating System Distribution since 2002.
I regularly attend Geek and Open Source Culture events around the North West and the UK and help to organise and run some were I can, including Barcamp Blackpool were I helped to record content from the event and help setup on the day.
I have recently started a new Podcast discussing Technology: from Home Brew and Consumer Electronics to more obscure uses of technology that you don’t hear talked about too often on podcasts and the general Tech Press. Of course there will still be a smattering of OSS, FOSS and Linux, introducing The Tech Shed Podcast
I have recently started my own business to deliver IT, Data and Telephony support to Startups, Small and Medium sized businesses, I recently undertook training and certification including Cisco Certified Network Associate, Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer and Information Technology Professional and am currently studying Red Hat Certified Engineer.
I am also a keen amateur photographer, the background image for this page is one that I've taken more of my picture can be found on my Flickr profile.
