Well it's a fair effort to find my website but now you're here have a look around. I'm a software engineer who specifically writes code for the LAMP enviroment. You can find me at airshows or loitering in someones hangar talking about aviation. During the week I'm a civvie, on the weekends I'm playing soldier. Life is my art!

So the world is in lockdown – it’s for the best. It feels like some giant social experiment but it’s really happening. Check out the Covid-19 website for all the information you need.


Reservists are also known as weekend warriors. Taking time away from family once a month we train 20 days a year. I’m a driver but currently in an admin position managing soldiers in my platoon.


It’s getting harder to keep current but flying has always been a big part of my life. There’s nothing like going on holiday and getting to fly yourself.
