I'm an ex-pat Welshman living and working in London. I love movies, books, music and sometimes my friends. I take great pleasure in finding the fun bits of London and even more in sharing it with my girlfriend, my friends and their kids.

I work with adults with learning disabilities. I have tried not doing it but it's kind of addictive once you start.

I don't have any kids, pets or houseplants but that doesn't mean that I don't enjoy them, I just don't want to be responsible for keeping them alive.

I was a political activist for 20 years and still consider myself to be a socialist. I firmly believe in standing up for what is right but like most people over forty most of that now happens from the comfort of my sofa.

I am a science fiction fan but not too enthused by a lot of modern technology. Nobody is more surprised than me that I even know what a blog is.
