Real Life:

For 17 years I was an engineering officer, project manager and technical consultant in the Royal Air Force. During the last four of those years I did a law degree with the Open University and then left the RAF to do an LLM in IT Law and Intellectual Property at the University of Edinburgh and the Bar Vocational Course at BPP Law School, Holborn. In July 2009 I was Called to the Bar by Middle Temple. I spent 2010 in the Law department at Queen Mary, University of London, researching the legal issues arising from Cloud computing, and 2011 undertaking pupillage in Birmingham to finish my qualification as a barrister, which I did in January 2012. I now practice civil and family law, mainly in Birmingham and the West Midlands.


I've long been a keen reader of science fiction (and lots of other genres, but sf in particular). I was until recently chair of the Science Fiction Foundation and have been involved in running several large sf conventions. In that capacity, I've usually worked on programme planning and/or on being the relatively sane member of the committee who can wear a suit and talk to hotel management. When I find the time, I enjoy playing board and card games with friends - mainly the complicated sort of the kind described here. Other than that I enjoy photography when I get the time.

I live in the Jewellery Quarter of inner Birmingham with the delightful attimes_bracing.

I used to be married to bugshaw. We are still friends; see her journal for mad gerbils, databases and robots.
