Work for me has been 2 careers; first as a motor vehicle technician (I aced the interview, by arriving in the kit car I built) and now, as an IT person. The problem solving, logical analysis skills I learned in the former, have proven invaluable over the years, and employing & exercising them is one of my favourite activities. I love the Internet and getting knee-deep into the networking protocols & services that bind the Internet together (TCP/IP, BGP, DNS, HTTP, SMTP, SSH etc), is a joy.
At home, I am a prolific YouTube viewer, read crime & adventure novels (along with the odd love story), and I like to use Oxford commas. I love nature – particularly the coast and I’m invested in renewable energy generation (personally with SolarPV and Solar Hot-Water) & Electric Vehicles. I’m an avid sailor – self-taught via windsurfing & small boats in and around Mudeford Sandbank (Dorset) in my mid-teens & have also sailed on larger yachts in Lanzarote & Fuerteventura and The Lesser Antilles.
