I am passionate about food and have a great many interests from technology and engineering to philosophy and astronomy. I have followed an interesting and varied career path which includes film making, flying Boeing 737s, flight instructing, working in as an architectural technologist, managing a large music venue and, most recently, operating a Remotely Operated Vehicle for underwater observation/camera work. I’m also lucky enough to have access to a bolt hole where I can disappear to write!
I describe myself as a foodie techno geek adventurer with an endless collection of gadgets, an eye for design and a love of anything unusual. My friends and family describe me as larger than life and a little bit different. I’m yet to decide if that is complimentary.
Technical skills include web design, graphic design, photography, sound and music production, film editing and writing copy. I am an Adobe licensee, competent with the software in the Adobe CC suit and familiar with the Celtx writing software, having written a number of screenplays and short stories. My wife and I have spent the last year designing and developing the EatBy App.
As expected, I am well equipped with geeky expertise that I have transferred from aviation and operating underwater ROVs. I am knowledgeable in jet, prop, and turboprop propulsion systems, meteorology, radio theory and operation, navigation, aerodynamics and principles of flight (which also applies to fluid dynamics), GPS, radio navigation and law. I have helped build a number of aircraft, and have also restored a Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit. Other engineering projects have included building an electrically powered river boat while I lived in Oxford, a six man hovercraft, and a number of small scale steam engine projects. I built my first long wave radio transceiver at the age of 14 and have built all my own PCs since 1996.
