He learnt to program computers at the age of 8 on Commodore Vic-20 and by the age of 11 had started to build his own hardware add-ons with robots and a burglar alarm system and hasn’t stopped hardware hacking since.
In his spare time, he likes to write programs, take random photos, build hardware projects using Arduinos, read books, write poetry and is one of a number of fire marshals* for various pagan events around the UK during the year..
