I enjoy travelling to new places, and my job has literally taken me around the world. I enjoy sharing my passion for programming with others and I am a regular presenter at local and international conferences and user groups. 

I am a Kinect For Windows (Microsoft Most Valuable Professional - MVP) and and I love showing off the device and getting audiences out of their seats to participate in my talks.  One of the best parts of my job is working from home with clients anywhere on Earth.  I love learning about new industries, businesses and how to help them do their job and serve their clients more efficiently.

In movies, I love anything with lots of action or a good horror/thriller.  Some of my favourites are Star Wars, Star Trek (new), XMen, Inception, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Island, Memento, Die Hard (series), Riddick (series).
