I like to understand things

Any fool can know. The point is to understand.

Really understanding how something works is something I really enjoy. That ureka moment is a great feeling.

Be it understanding data, technology or the cause of a problem, I like to get down to the nitty-gritty.

I like to make things

I'm always thinking about creating. My future starts when I wake up every morning Every day I find something creative to do with my life

I love having a project on the go. I usually have a handful in progress at any pne time. Be it home automation, building model planes or writing code for a personal project. Read more about these in my blog.

I began running when I was in my twenties with a Park Run, it's a great way to start social running.

Within a year of tackling my first 5km run I ran 10km. The following year I did a half marathon. Then five half marathons in 2015.

2016 saw me complete the Cambridge Half Marathon (1h29m), the Manchester Marathon (3h32m) and the London to Cambridge 100km Challenge (13h30m). In total I've run over 1000km in 2016.
