"A traveller with a camera!" I was born in Tanzania but have lived here in the United Kingdom since the age of two. I've always liked science and engineering so, after graduating, I took up a career in telecommunications and datacoms, with an emphasis in systems engineering and assurance. I have various interests in programming, photography, and pedalling furiously on my mountain bike! I also enjoy travelling off the beaten path, seeing the natural world, and meeting different peoples in their varied cultures.
