Technology has been part of my life since I was a child. I still remember learning to program my BBC Model B computer when I was 10 and the excitement as the technology advanced so quickly.
Now the environment is so much more complex but no less exciting to me. I enjoy keeping up to date with developments and trying out new devices. In particular, you will often find me watching TED talks about technology, big data and security, or leafing through the latest IT journals.
I have been long distance running for the last couple of years and I enjoy getting out at least once a week for a challenging run. I also enter half marathons and fun runs whenever I can.
My family are at the centre of my life and, having two young children, weekends and holidays usually revolve around them and their antics.
