I am 37 years old. I was born in Beverley, East Yorkshire. I come from a long line of farmers. My Dad, Mum and brother run the farm (near Goodmanham) - no animals, just crops. I was never very interested in it so I studied art at school in Pocklington and college in York. I received a BA(Hons) in Graphic Design specialising in design for screen from Coventry University in 1998.
I used to play a lot of rugby for Pocklington and Driffield in this country and for Waverley in Sydney, Australia. I don't play anymore thanks to various knee injuries so I spend my time working out in the gym instead. I love body pump classes and running.
I have spent a couple of years living in Australia and I absolutely love the place. In fact I'd quite like to live there again.
I attend as many web conferences and geek get togethers as I can afford.
