The dry bits…
I have worked in various areas of the computing industry, ranging from systems integration to building systems for on-line console gaming networks. Currently, I am employed as a Lead Software Engineer in creating on-line solutions for the recruitment industry.
My main computing interests fall in the areas of web development, security and Big Data (e.g. MongoDB).
The wet bits…
I have a history in judo, achieving a 1st Dan black belt under the British Judo Association. During my time in he martial art, I became a qualified UKCC Level 1 coach, and National ‘C’ referee. Both on a volunteer basis. Please also see my Judo CV.
My current fitness interests revolve around football refereeing. I am currently a level 5 (Senior County) referee affiliated to Surrey FA. I officiate for age groups ranging from under 8s to veterans, and every match is different in terms of approach and the use of ‘man management’ skills. The discipline and confidence from judo has certainly carried over! More on my refereeing page.
I am a musician who specialises in guitar and dabbles in bass. Please see my music
