Programmer, climber, occasional Scottish Dancer, sometime runner, erstwhile Alpinist and constant exile from the English Lakes.
I've been a professional software developer since about 2007. I've previously worked as C# developer for ASH Wireless, and True Clarity. I'm currently Head of Software at Adam Matthew; a digital publisher working with archives and libraries around the world to publish original historical manuscripts and documents.
I've been climbing since about 2011, and mostly consider myself to be a trad climber, but sometimes I have pretensions about "being a mountaineer". If I'm honest what I really mean by this is I like long mountainous routes, and I own a pair of Ice Axes..
I've climbed all around England and Wales, and further afield in Europe and Morocco. I've also done a number of first ascents in the Morrocan Anti-Atlas. I'd love to do more Winter and Alpine climbing, but I suspect I'll keep returning to Tafraout for years to come..
