I am an imaginative and highly motivated programmer currently doing part 4 software engineering MEng at The University of Southampton and working at Triple Software Ltd where I have worked for the past 6 years and am currently head programmer.
I am interested in computer gaming especially using Nvidia 3D Vision and love attending the Euro Gamer Expo in London every year. My main gaming platform is my computer although I also own a Wii, XBox360 and PS3. I am also an avid reader, (mostly Sci-fi and Fantasy) and particularly like Alastair Reynolds novels. I also enjoy hiking and Jiu-Jitsu which I have done since I was a child. But most of all I love travel, I love to see and experience everything I can in every country I can visit, you will never catch me laying around on a beach I always pack as much into my holidays as I can. I particularly love the orient and visited China in 2007 which remains my favourite holiday, I hope to return one day but my sights are more focussed on Japan, I love anime especially Gintama which I find hilarious and find the ancient Japanese culture fascinating but most of all I hope one day to visit the Arctic on a National Geographic vessel with Lindblad Expeditions.
Additionally I am the president and founder of the Southampton Lock Picking Society which is a general security society and is a subject which I find fascinating. In July 2012 I attended DEFcON for the first time and found it both useful and exciting and I hope to return in the years to come.
