Well what about me, well I’m 31, male and well I can’t think of anything else to say, so that’ll have to do!

Actually here’s a bit more, I’m a Web Developer, Windows Developer, iPhone Developer and an amateur photographer. I’ve posted some of my better (and some not so brilliant) photos in my collections gallery. Take a look.

I live in Essex in the United Kingdom, married to Beth and live with our pet cat Jinx. Some of my interests are Formula 1, Egyptology, Ancient Rome, Gaming, Photography, Running, Working out.

On my blog on this site, I pretty much ramble on about anything I can think of, when I remember or have the time to do so!  I will of course state up front that anything I say on my own site are my own views and not those of any of my employers, past or present.  I will also avoid anything controversial and definitely avoid anything confidential.

Photography

This is what I use for photography.

  • Canon EF 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 II lens and
