I live in Stockport with my wife Sheila and daughter Kerry. I have an eclectic collection of skills and experiences (mostly gained from my numerous interests and hobbies):
I am currently working as a software engineer. I am self taught and have experience in several languages, such as C/C++/C#, Java, Python, PHP and SQL. I class myself as being language agnostic and see individual languages as tools in my tool-kit, you select the right tool for the job.
I am trained and have many years experience in graphic design, from print based media to exhibition stands and broadcast graphics (see gallery).
I am trained and have many years experience in video and photography, from commercial product shots to weddings, landscapes and war zones (specifically middle east).
I am skilled in mechanical engineering and the associated tools/equipment, such as welding (arc/mig), cutting (gas and plasma), machining (lathes), bodywork & paint-shop.
