I’m a Senior Network Engineer working for a provider of data and voice networks for a multitude of companies.  These networks can be anything from regional to global in reach.  My role is to configure the various devices that comprise the networks, troubleshoot when they go wrong, plan and manage changes to the networks, and to act as a consultant for new designs and projects.  All this keeps me fairly busy and sometimes takes up all my time and energy.

In my spare time I experiment with various online business ideas and have been doing so since the mid 1990s when the World Wide Web was in its infancy.

In the 1980s I learned to fly and acquired a PPL licence in 1991. I still fly occasionally with an instructor.

In the past few years I have undertaken additional training in unmanned aviation and social media marketing.  This combines a long term interest in aviation with skills acquired while running and managing online businesses.
