Biographical stuff

I was born in 1948, the oldest of 4 children - to my father (an electronics engineer) and my mother (whom he met in Alexandria during the war).

My scientific interests were nurtured from an early age and I became familiar with Electronics, Chemistry and Astronomy.
I received a classical education in a Catholic boarding school and was admitted to Downing College in 1967 to read Natural Sciences.
"Coming down" in 1970 without a degree, I enrolled with the Open University to study Mathematics and obtained a BA some years later.

I have worked for the majority of the time in programming roles using mostly assembler and C.
I worked at Xerox for 15 years - and in 1998 was recognised by receiving the Xerox President's award at a ceremony in New York.

Presently I spend my time travelling and studying.
I have a house in Hertfordshire and have 3 children - all now in work.
My interests include Linux, Bamboo, Electronics and Playing Go.
