Who I am

Since the late 20th century, I've built websites and applications to make people's creative lives easier. I eat my own dog food.

Work ethos

I've always been a quick study, and so as a bit of a generalist, this means I can adapt to new technologies or working methods quickly. I don't deal in certainties, preferring instead to listen and learn and occasionally doubt myself, than to assume my "tried and tested" means are automatically right.

Some atypical career highlights

  • Presenting regular shows on local Internet radio stations
  • Producing a frequent, positive news show which made it to Apple Podcasts' New & Noteworthy¬†list in its first few days
  • Building content management systems that have been used by companies like Poundland in the West Midlands and the British Council's library in Pakistan
  • Giving talks in Cardiff, Warsaw and Florence
  • Presenting the award for the Comedy category at the British Podcast Awards, 2017
  • Building a Twitter tool that was used by the Guardian Media Group
  • Recording over a dozen audiobooks with Audible

My podcasts

I've hosted and produced an inordinate number of podcasts over the years. Here are the ones you can hear me on now.

Beware of the Leopard

The complete podcast compendium to the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, covering the radio, TV, book and film incarnations of Douglas Adams' "trilogy in five parts", alphabetically, from Arthur to Zaphod and all points in-between.

Bitrate

A podcast I co-host with my friend and Podiant confident Brendan Hutchins, about podcast culture.

Thread

My co-host, Jon Hickman and I exchange homework aimed at furthering our own careers and achieving our ambitions to dominate our respective worlds. We also spend a lot of time making jokes about the Internet.
