I am a life long creative and have interests in a wide verity of areas including website development, technical writing, computer graphics, making and playing ocarinas and model engineering. I am inspired by the rapid developments of technology and the technical beauty of well designed systems working in harmony.
Most recently I have authored a book, The Art Of Ocarina Making, which details the process of making ocarinas. The ocarina is quite an unusual instrument and while there is plenty of information detailing the physical prosess of there construction, details of the finer technical aspects are quite scarce. These details were picked up through experimentation, I am a strong self educator and am able to quickly pick up skills as required by projects.
In addition to technical subjects I enjoy walking and completed the 177 mile Offa’s Dyke path in 2011, a diary of the walk can be found below.
