application security by day
In my day job, I work for a FTSE100 company as head of information security, concentrating on application security and compliance.
podcasting and amateur radio by night
I gained my Foundation amateur radio license in April 2021, with the call sign M7TLB. I’ve spoken to other amateurs all over the world, completely over the air, and also assisted (bridged) over the internet.
musician, hacker, geek, FLOSS advocate
As a musician, I’m a bit of a multi-instrumentalist – many instruments, master of none. I play – with varying degrees of competence – drums, piano, and bass. I’m the drummer in a covers band in my local area. I’ve also been known to sing.
husband, father of three
I’ve been married to Caroline for 21 years, and we have 3 utterly gorgeous children: Luke (17), Des (15), and Alex (10). We live in a small mining village in South Yorkshire, UK.
