I was born in Liverpool, England. After academia, I worked in the Midlands, and then in Christchurch, New Zealand. I now make my home in Santa Cruz, CA. I work for a well known company in Silicon Valley, specializing in embedded multimedia systems and hardware/software interaction. My passion is photography, specializing in nature and landscape photography. I love being out in nature and traveling; there is so much to see and experience beyond the computer screen.
