By day, I manage the recording and production studios and the central equipment store at the University of Salford. I'm an Apple Certified Technical Coordinator, Avid Certified Pro Tools Operator and a member of the British Computing Society. My specialist subject is studio systems design, particularly the integration of networked audio technologies. My academic background is in Psychology, where my focus was on auditory perception and human-computer interaction.
Tinkering usually boils down to very simple microcontroller hardware design or software for small embedded systems, though this has to compete with family and snowboarding, which often win. I also seem to have become a bit of a computer security nerd in recent years.
To prove I am who I say I am, my public key and identity can be checked on my Keybase profile.
