This is me, I work on the web.
I'm a Ruby developer mainly working with the Rails framework. I'm fortunate to work with some of the best developers/people in the universe and as I'm based in London I get to hang out with many more of them at LRUG
Aside from writing software I have a strong passion for the art of photography, specifically black and white and working with off camera light sources. If I did it all again I'd probably be an architect (the kind that designs buildings)
Having grown up across three continents in London, Riyadh, Leysin (Switzerland) and Boston whilst also feeling at home in North Cyprus, Dubai and New York, it's the vast network of people in my extended family that make me who I am ("We form like Voltron" as a wise man once said)
I also love music, exercise, football, snowboarding, motorcycles and cars (I love a lot of stuff but I've taken each of these to legal/illegal extremes)
This is who I am, who are you?

A curious error appeared in the New York World in astatement regarding the annual convention of the StreetRailway Association of the State of New York. It saidthat at the meeting C. S. Sims, of the Delaware & HudsonRailroad, declared that a large number of electric railwaymotormen are now habitual users of cocaine, and are takingthe <lrug in the form of snuff. The only speech which Mr.Sims made at the convention was at the banquet, when heresponded to a toasl, and the subject of cocaine was notmentioned in any way by him.
