Bio

I am married with 2 daughters, and currently live in Taunton, Somerset, UK

I trained in IT at City University, London, studying in a B.Sc. in Computer Science 1994 - 1997.
I self studied and then sat my MySQL certification exams in Autumn 2012.

I lived in London for 5 years. I also lived in the Northwest of England for the first 5 years of marriage, in and around Chester and Manchester. We moved to Taunton in 2005.

I started working in video media circa 2003, working at a satellite TV channel part time, and setting up our own TV programme, UK Christian News, which ran 2004 - 2006.

Merging my Media and Technology skills for me was an obvious move with my Technology training background, and as media was moving more and more into a computing paradigm from its discrete equipment heritage.

I currently am working as a IT Trainer, in Taunton, Somerset. www.taunton.it
