  • I have a general interest in technology which I combine my work, investing, history and economics.


  • I enjoy travelling and seeing new sites.


  • I enjoy taking pictures with my smartphone, and I particularly like the challenge of pushing my creativity with a camera that has limited capabilities compared to a standard/DSLR camera.  See my Instagram page and a selection of creative photos on this website for some examples.
