Other Bits & Pieces

Some stuff I enjoy

  • Travel

    I did the digital nomad thing for a couple of years, and hope to go back to being somewhat nomadic in the future

    I built and lived in a van while I did a road trip from Canada to Mexico and back again

  • Cooking

    I enjoy cooking (and eating) new things.

    I even made my own recipe website

  • Making & DIY

    I founded Dundee MakerSpace and I'm now a member of Makespace Madrid, and I've visited a few others on my travels.

    In particular I enjoy making small electronics, home automation, laser cutting and random low quality artwork

  • Indieweb

    I am a supporter of the Indieweb movement and make a bunch of tools in that space.

  • Movies & TV

    A lot of the usual suspects!
