About me

I am originally from Middlesex (but they stole it in 1965). I have been progressively working my way Northward: Cambridge in 1980, Bradford in 1991, and near Ripon at the end of 2015.

After a degree in Maths and Law at King's College, Cambridge, I worked mostly in IT, but left that to do a Master's in Peace studies at the University of Bradford in 1991-2; I returned to IT in the following years. I worked at Pace plc from 1998 until I retired at the end of 2011.

I have always been interested and active in music (mainly classical), maths, and linguistics; but since my second stint as a student I have had an abiding interest in theatre, culminating in buying the Bradford Playhouse in July 2014. I am also a Morris dancer, and a trustee of the More To Life Foundation, the charity which supports the More to Life programme in the UK.

Some articles I have contributed to

Local history



I'm a regular reader and answerer, at WP:Help Desk, the WP:Teahouse and Wikipedia:Reference desk, and was startled on 18 February 2017 to be awarded the Editor of the Week award because of it.
