Tell us a bit about yourself (family/work etc)
I am the Development Manager at Edit Websites.  I live pretty close to the office in Solihull.  Before this job, I’ve worked as a Children’s and Youth Pastor, a radio presenter and as a software developer on Old Street in London, right next to what’s becoming known as ‘Silicon Roundabout.’  My family all live in Essex, including my parents, broth and niece.

What’s a typical day for you
I work with our team of developers to plan and build new features for our software, answer some customer questions and dream up new ways in which we can help churches and charities to be better organised and to hep them communicate with their members and wider communities more effectively.

What are you happiest doing, when you’re not working?
I really enjoy travelling, new people and places are best but I don’t mind revisiting places that are interesting and fun.  I love travelling to other countries but can also enjoy a trip to a part of the UK I’ve now been to before.  I also enjoy sailing and go out with my father on his boat on the Thames during Summer months.

Do you have any skills or talents that most people don’t know about?
I have a really good memory and like learning as much as I can about all areas of life.  I also have, thanks to some voice coaching, a really loud voice when required and was always the guy called on to get the attention of a youth or children’s group and generally could do so no matter how rowdy they were.

Do you have a favourite travel destination?
New York City, NY - go whenever I can.
