A Physicist by background who having had various industrial jobs developing products decided to do a Reggie Perrin and work for myself (in the UK this means ditch the real job because it is driving you crazy). Having trained myself to programme again, moving from the likes of Fortran and Pascal from university days to web based stuff like php and java, I have developed several ventures, one involving sweets (candy for Americans), www.letterboxfriendly.co.uk another involving energy www.confusedaboutenergy.co.uk and some new software ideas in partnership with a programmer who is considerably more talented than me. I am also tasked in life with constantly maintaining my wife's sweet shop here in Whitley Bay, take a look www.baysweetsandgift.co.uk. Its all good fun!
