Personal computing

I like to use Linux on all my systems, laptops and servers alike.

I am very passionate about my community. Currently I sit on the board of Nottingham Hackspace as a Trustee.

I am also an LGBT+ activist. For several years, I was a Trustee of Coventry Pride working in the Press and Publicity subcommittee and later as Vice Chair.

Photographic interests

On weekends, I'm a freelance photographer specialising in event photography. I work with with Pride Pics to 'capture the experience' of LGBT+ Pride events around the country.
