basically have a 30 year old scientist, going on 15. I would like to
think that I have an open mind to the world, however being a scientist

had a number of jobs part time, in particular working for Games
Workshop when I was an undergraduate at UMIST in Manchester. Having
finished undergraduate studies I studied for my PhD in computational
chemistry at the University of Manchester. I am now a Postdoctoral
researcher in computational chemistry at the University of Warwick and
as a consequence live in the lovely town of Leamington Spa. I also like
writing and being a Storyteller for role play games, mainly those by
White Wolf, but also Etherscope and WHRP. I have also dabbled in script
writing, short stories and free lance writing for a sci fi roleplay
game. I also co-host the Darker Days Podcast.
I am now married to the love of my life, Sam, without whom life would not be as exciting and wonderful.
