A little about me
I live in Clifton, Bristol but regularly travel extensively around the UK. I have two main professional passions - Web/Internet Technology & Commercial Aviation.
I have recently left the role of Head of Technology for Arsenal FC's Digital Media Business, which I had been doing for 9 years. Now, I am building up my own e-commerce business Dining Solutions which provides restaurants with takeaway online ordering for their customers. In 2001/3 I took time out to train full time as an airline pilot at Oxford Aviation. It was something I had always wanted to do and I'm planning on using my licence much more fully in the future.
Socially, I love the theatre, cinema, eating out, reading, travel, museums, galleries, arty things, the Internet, spending time with family and friends, pubs and bars, getting away for the weekend, music, photography, or just staying in and watching t.v. I'm interested in loads of things really; from politics & current affairs to marketing, business, science and psychology. I adore BBC Radio 4 and have a wide range of musical tastes - from Classical to Pop. When I read a paper it's likely to be the Guardian or Independent. I massively enjoy travel and don't think anything of zooming off somewhere at the drop of a hat. I'm not gym obsessed but I like to go three times a week and find it a great way to catch-up with Podcasts while keeping trim!
Less common for a gay man perhaps, I'm lucky enough to have two amazing, grown-up children (from my former marriage). My daughter Rachel graduated from University of Oxford - she read Modern History & Politics at New College - and then completed a Postgrad in International Relations at LSE, followed by an Internship at UC Davies in Sacramento. Rachel now works for the Palestinian Solidarity Campaign. My son Sam graduated from University of Edinburgh, having read Geography. Sam is on the Finance Graduate Scheme at TUI and is working hard towards CIMA qualification. I am naturally proud of them both.
