I like looking at the world around me and the people in it, trying to understand how it works and fits together. That’s why I sketch and create art.
Professionally I work as a UX designer at the Met Office. It’s a fascinating place to work that helps many people and businesses with day to day things (e.g. can I hang my washing out) to extreme things (e.g. Mountain Rescue saving lives amongst storms and lightning).
Nia is fusion dance with mindfulness, combining the power and precision of martial arts, expression of dance and comfort and pleasure of healing arts. I teach a class for staff at Met Office employees and will start a public class in 2020.
And I like Beards
I’m modelling a fortune telling beard I created for the 2014 British Beard and Moustache Championships in Bath in this picture. It’s the World Championship in Antwerp in 2019. It’s a thing. Admittedly a niche thing.
