Random stuff about me:
Once part of a team of 7 in a raft race. The other six quit during the race, but I refused, and completed the course alone. Was knackered at end though.
Wrote first website, in HTML, in 1997
Currently based in the UK, but have a nomadic heart.
Why not get in touch (via Social Media links), I don’t usually bite.
