I was born in the United Kingdom. As an individual, I am an eclectic mix as I have tried many things and I have many hobbies.
My educational path was fairly straightforward starting with a B.Sc. in Experimental Psychology and progressing through a Masters in Computer Science to a Fellowship at Oxford University where I undertook research into Intelligent interfaces to make databases more accessible to the average user. I also taught a range of subjects to Oxford students, from User Interface Design through Artificial Intelligence. I have an MBA from the University of Vermont and over 20 years of experience in the computing and Web Industries.
