I live in Edinburgh in the United Kingdom, and I am married with a baby on the way!

I have a keen interesting in technology, including open source, and hardware hacking with Raspberry Pi and Arduino. I also have a somewhat dwindling interest in photography.

I tweet about various (but mostly geeky) things.


I am a software engineer with a specific interest in Cloud Computing. I work for Cloudsoft (although views expressed on this site are my own and not necessarily my employers) working on the Apache Brooklyn project. See my StackExchange Career Profile for some more information on the things I've done.
