I am a computer programmer living in Sheffield, UK with my wife Krissy, baby daughter Evie and two cats. I play the violin and harmonica and occasionally fiddle about with a guitar. I dabble about every now and then with my various cameras but there aren't always that many pretty things in Sheffield to photograph! I have also started learning Mandarin Chinese. One day my brain will get full and it will explode. Life is a big confusing place, and more and more these days I'm feeling like the last analogue man in a digital world.

If I've added you to my friends list, please don't feel obliged to add me back unless you want to, I post a lot of nonsense that even my "real life" friends would find brain-numbingly dull...

My amazon wishlist

If any of you want to buy me something (well it's worth a shot)... wishlist
