Having picked up a guitar at the age of 14, music has been a key part of my life. I have seen the Manic Street Preachers over 35 times and have been to every major music festival in the UK. In school I learned trumpet and the violin, I self/internet-taught guitar, bass, drums, mandolin. Music theory fascinates me.

I tend not to watch TV and film, but have a number of YouTube Channels I really enjoy.

For the TV I have enjoyed:

  • Red Dwarf
  • Quantum Leap
  • Farscape
  • Star Trek (all but TOS)
  • 24
  • Peep Show
  • Taskmaster

I am a Trustee for Nottingham Hackspace, one of the largest makerspaces in the UK. I found this space when I wanted to be able to lasercut items for my escape room. Nottingham Hackspace has an A0 laser cutter, and much, much more…

I have participated in 7 half-marathons, 5 triathlons, 1 duathlon, and 2 kilomathons (26.2km). I achieved approx 250 days of a daily run streak before I injured my ankle. I have cycled London to Paris twice, one of these in 25.5 hours non-stop (except the 1 hour ferry). In Feb 2021 I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes and I am carefully going to restart my exercise.
