About Me

I am a PHP software developer, for an insurance company. I also occasionaly write a blog post about PHP development.

I am married, and our daughter was born in February '07. Smile

I learned Portuguese after buying a second-hand linguaphone course, which was the main tool I used for learning the language. I have visited Portugal, Madeira, the Azores, Cape Verde, and Brazil.

My other interests include running (I am a member of vegan runners), classical guitar, chess, drawing, astronomy, films, wine and beer making, and various other things that I don't get time for these days!
