I am a *nix systems engineer, coder, ricer, gamer, and comic collector.

For 5 years I helped organise and run a small comic convention in Wiltshire, Melksham Comic Con.

As a long time heavy metal fan and a close friend of "The Gentleman of Metal" from the Powerzone radio show, I have been extremely lucky to interview muscians for the show. I have recorded interviews with bands including Sabaton, Ensiferum, and Korpiklaani. The interviews can be found on SoundCloud.
