Comedian, Geek & Weirdo
Introduction
I'm a geek & a comedian. Work at JCB as a contract developer during the day and gig as often as I can in the evenings & at weekends.

Have a lovely wife (Jem) and very funny daughter (Jazzy).

I have lots of Circles (far too many). Let me know if you want to be in one of these:
  • Comedy
  • Geeks
  • Writers
  • Wine & Whisky
  • Sci-fi & Fantasy
  • Burlesque
  • Dr. Who
  • People's Front of Judea
  • Mobile Dev
Geek: I'm interested in programming large-scale multi-tier websites, mobile development (Android, iOS & WP7).

Comedian: Whimsy peddler. Musical comedian. Creator of Gigatron 5000 (AI comedian) and generally silliness. Gigatron is currently resting.

Weirdo: Writer of poetry, hummer of songs, wearer of hats, grower of beards (during Winter - my wife has timeshare on my face).

Bragging rights
I once owned a pet chicken.
