About meEdit

A software engineer who loves real ale, coffee, video games, and food.


Love experimenting with different Programming languages. I occasionally enjoy video games, but have less time for this than I used to. Am starting to become more interested in board games (who knew that Monopoly and Scrabble aren't the only ones?).

Blackadder, Yes (Prime) Minister, A Bit of Fry and Laurie number amongst my favourite TV programs. What the Butler Saw is now my favourite play after seeing a production in London, Tim McInnerny and Omid Djalili are a superb pair of clowns.

Despite having a taste for intrigue and stories, I was never good at history at school; I'm trying to make up for it!


Hiking, snowboarding, karting.
