Story
Tagline
Mobile tech obsessive, martial arts fan, mad fitness training and general geeky sci fi lover
Introduction
I'm mildly obsessed with martial arts, cutting edge fitness and strength training, gadgets of all sorts, dogs, sci-fi and tech. (So if you're the same, feel free to circle me - sure we'll click)

If you're interested in general nonsense then add me to a silly people Circle.

If you're interested in X-Factor, reality TV and that sort of thing then I'm probably not someone with much to offer.

Geek, nerd, fitness fan, follower of science and lover of gadgets probably apply more.

Servant to a Jack Russell.

Trying to learn iOS development but failing miserably as I find my iPhone terribly dull.

Learning more about Android development. Failing less miserably but yeah, there is a fragmentation issue that fries my brain cells a bit.
Bragging rights
Learning Android and iOS programming by resurrecting some ancient BASIC skills. Used to be able to do one armed press ups. Might still be able to.

Tasty but expensive for what is, at its heart, gastropub food. Nice atmosphere and decor but doesn't stand out in the array of other pubs and restaurants on Bermondsey Street.

Stunning decor, decent food, reasonably priced and if you squint a bit you will feel transported back to 1930's Paris. Great place to take someone special whilst on a secret budget :)

A very pleasant cafe in Canada Water. Also benefits from being the only cafe in Canada Water. :) Very tasty coffee, chatty and fun staff and its also dog friendly. Well worth a visit if you're a local

Full of wafty, sylph-like, model wannabe staff, it's a bit too much style over substance. Food is decent but overpriced and, sin of all sins nowadays, there's no WiFi :)

Decent modern British menu, not cheap for what's pretty typical gastropub fare, but the spectacular views are some of the best you'll get in London. Great for a first date. Be aware that there is airport style security.

As close to a Hong Kong style bakery you can get in London, the cakes here are delicious, the custard tarts are fantastic. Everything freshly baked. Prices typical of Chinatown so well worth a visit for a sugar rush

Newly moved in from the depths of Peckham, Southerden does its best to raise the sugar levels of Bermondsey Street by offering some of the tastiest, most delicate pastries in the area. Very reasonable prices for a high end patisserie. The matcha and apple choux buns are dangerously moreish and the praline baked doughnuts are highly addictive. Well worth a weekend visit as long as a run by the Thames is scheduled straight after!
