Having (partially) exited my business, I now spend my time reading, thinking and writing about the things I like: human cognition, men’s health and the science of engineering.
Building things was my first love. I have had an immensely enjoyable time at university, having designed, built and tested cantilevers, analogue radios, robot buggies, smart antennas, amplifier circuits and other cool stuff. I owe much of what I know as an engineer to David Edwards who had tutored me for four years at Oxford where I was an undergraduate.
Currently I am rebuilding the electronics of an aging Epiphone Les Paul, one bought from the famed Tin Pan Alley in London in 1999.
