Current Work

A change of focus for a new year. I’m now with Birmingham City University and will be working on their public and internal websites. I left Connect Group at the end of 2017, up to which point I worked as a .Net Developer on projects for clients including Liverpool Airport , Birmingham Airport, Jaguar Land Rover, Tarmac and Xercise4Less.

I spent the early part of 2017 looking after our baby daughter while my wife Melinda returned to work. It was easily the hardest job I’ve ever had, but also very rewarding.


I tried a 365 project last year and made good progress bu about a third of the way throug I missed a day. The I missed another, then another. A few more missed days later I made my peace with the project having failed.

I’m posting more iPhone photos on Instagram  and photos with my mirrorless camera to another Instagram. I’m a bit behind on posting to it but I have a flickr account called shotonaniphone. Please stop by and leave a comment.

There’s also my photography blog where I sometimes post free to download and use wallpapers.


Having a baby girl has put a major dent in my riding, which is drag as I already felt like I was doing way less than I wanted to. It has opened us some other cycling experiences though. We now head out for rides with baby in tow thanks to the somewhat expensive, but worth it, Thule Chariot.
