A photo of me while climbing Deep Blue Sea on the Eiger

I’m an experienced freelance software developer, Enspiral contributor and a keen rock climber.

I too often see technology exacerbating problems like inequality, the environmental crisis and our disconnection from each other and the natural world which sustains us.

These problems are complex and I don’t have all the answers, but I seek to at least not make things worse! I often explore these themes in my writing.

Originally from Britain, I now live in Victoria, Australia.

If anything here strikes a chord, I’d love to hear from you.
