I have a passion for Home Automation, often in my spare time dabbling with programming stuff in my house to react to events - for example, when locking the house, check all the doors and windows are closed and flash the external lights to green if they are, and red if they're not. I love programming, and I love using my programming skills in a different way by working with physical devices.

I'm also very interested in Current Affairs and Politics, and have spent a lot of time volunteering for a political party I support, helping out on technical matters, helping with elections and delivering the odd leaflet or two.

I also love spending my free time with my partner of 9 years, Lucinda. She's very patient and embraces my love for Home Automation, rather than worrying about the house slowly getting filled up with Technology.
