A BIT MORE ABOUT ME
Sorry. I’m going to waffle on about myself a bit now.
Find out a bit about my hobbies and interested. Also a little insight into my career.
Hobbies and Interests
I like exercise and challenging myself with a few extreme events. To date, I have done 2 Half Marathon’s. 2 Manchester 10k’s. 2 Tough Mudder’s and A Born Survivor.
I’m currently trying meditation to help me with my focus and concentration, as well as the other benefits it can bring. I’m also trying to teach myself Spanish. Can be a bit of a challenge with my strong Bolton accent
Diet wise, I try and follow a Primal/Paleo way of eating and exercising. It has its challenges.
Music and Guitar
In my early teens, I saved up and bought my first Electric Guitar. I’m always trying to find time to play more, although I’m not great and are embarrassed to play in front of people, even my wife.
I’ve been through a few different guitars. Currently I own an acoustic, Epiphone Les Paul and my dream Guitar, a custom made Gisbon Les Paul. Thank you to my wonderful wife, parents and in-laws for getting it me for my 40th birthday. Look how beautiful it is.

Going to play this bad boy shortly. I have to say a massive thank you to my wife, parents and in-laws for getting me this for my 40th birthday. I'm very fortunate to have such a kind and generous family. It has been a dream of mine to own one of these iconic guitars since I was 16. Thanks Rach 😘 😘 😘.
If I get chance I like to get outdoors and go Fishing. As a pastime I love it. It is very Marmite though, you either love of hate it.
I mainly do course fishing on Lakes and Reservoirs. Tried a little bit of River and Sea Fishing. Like nothing better to be sat beside a lake though.
After studying for a Computing Science degree I have been working as a Software Developer since mid 2007. I have been fortunate enough to work for some excellent companies. I’m predominantly a .Net Developer which has been the main technology that I have used in my professional career. Cloud Computing is also an area that I have gained a lot of knowledge in.
I have used all sorts of tech in my spare time, freelancing and working on side projects. From Android and Java through to WordPress and everything in between
