Since October 2013 I have been a part-time research student in medieval history at the University of Exeter.

Took my first degree back in 1978 (Geography at the University of Birmingham).

Then worked in the IT industry for over 30 years (from 1991 to 2012 at Metron Technology Ltd, based in Taunton, Somerset, where I was Technical Director). 

Returned to academic study in 2012 when I went to the University of Cambridge to take an MPhil in medieval history.

I am married with two grown-up children and live in Exeter.
