Ugh, another one of these shameless plug pages… oh, wait, no, it’s my page. Even worse!!
Welcome, if you’re reading this, it’s because you’re a stalker, wonder who the hell is writing all that stuff in the other bit, or you go so bored by my writing you’ve wandered over here.
What would you like to know?
Let’s start with age, as it appears to be important, turned 40 in 2017, although I rarely act like it.
I live in lovely leafy Wiltshire. In a nice little village with great views out the back, but not so much out the front. Yes, I have cats, two of the little terrorists (waves to the NSA who have just read that and spat their coffee over a monitor). Trust me, they have four paws and the only threat to national security they pose is at 4 in the morning when one of them is climbing up a door while the other one meows at her.
Also a dog, who amongst many things is a dufus, an idiot, a complete asshat and utterly adorable. We’re kind of a comedy double act. Normally found in public with me loudly asking him not to be a dick, normally when he’s being a dick.
I’ve worked in technology for over 20 years. Started off doing tech support (yes it really was like the IT Crowd), then moved over to the dark side of Project Management (where I was lucky enough to avoid an ulcer and a coronary) and now doing all things UX, IA & Digital Strategy. I have a strange Jedi-fu for looking at a website and knowing exactly what users will have problems with in testing. If you’d like to know more about my professional skills, please visit my business website Oubliette.
You will normally find me at home (hey, I like my own company, don’t judge!) listening to trance music, writing, annoying the dog and reading far too much.
If you’ve read this far then do stick around… things are just about to get interesting.
