I live in Cork, Ireland, and am married to Kay.

If you’re wondering where the tagline on my Blog comes from, here is a clue.

I got interested in technology and software development in particular when my brother got an Amstrad 6128 for Christmas in the early 90s. It shipped with a BASIC interpreter, which I used more than playing any of the games. I still have this machine. Check out a cool Amstrad CPC emulator here.

When I’m not playing about with some code or learning something new, you’ll find me reading (particularly German history), drinking German beer, listening to The Stone Roses, or attempting to become the next Jimmy Page on my guitar (I still live in hope).
