I graduated from Aberystwyth University in July 2010 with a Second Class Honours, Division 1 (2:1) degree in Computer Science, and am currently working as the Systems Administrator for eCommerce flash sales market leader Secret Sales, though I have previously held positions at financial trading software house TIM Group and global broadcast provider Red Bee Media.

Akai Project Nineteen Ninetyseven 1997 Bass Guitar

I am an advocate of and great believer in Free Software, my main Linux distribution is Ubuntu (though I’m equally happy with CentOS and other Red Hat derivatives), and I am also a member of Free Software Foundation (FSF).

In my spare time. I follow Liverpool Football Club (for better or worse!), enjoy listening to and playing heavy metal and classic rock music and am an active member of the stage crew for local amateur dramatic societies.

I own two bass guitars – an Akai Project 1997 four-string (right) and Fender American Standard Precision V five-string.
