I'm 37, work in IT and live in Plympton, a small town near Plymouth in the South West of the UK. I have an MSc in Intelligent Computer Networks, finishing my research project in IT Security in August 2002.

I worked as a Network Administrator for several companies until I found my present role which doesn't involve fixing computers , looking at blue progress bars or coming in during the middle of the night to patch a server!.

I have many varied interests: - Sport: football, mountain biking, climbing and hill walking - Music, Varied tastes from Pink Floyd right the way through to Orbital, Faithless, (but not pop) - Movies - Humour - Computing - and Travel

I have led a quite exciting life, going backpacking around Asia and Australia when I was 21. the highlight of which was a three week trek to Everest base camp. In 2000 I spent a month in Malawi, Southern Africa. See the Travel section for a more indepth view, and pictures

Education wise I went to Manchester University to study Economics and Finance, breaking it up with a three month stint at a summer camp in New York State courtesey of Bunac. I did my Msc at the University of Plymouth.
