This is what I like!

Scuba Diving        This is my favourite past time.  I qualified as a BSaC Sports Diver in 2000, and am an active member of a local club.  I took up diving in 1999 and my only regrets are that I did not start many years ago, and that work commitments prevent me from diving as often as I would like!  although not a cheap sport, I would recommend that everyone should give it a shot!

There are some photo's of my club diving trip to Estartit during September 2000 in the photo album along with a few pictures taken in Tenerife.....

I like to try to play golf but unfortunately, without a pro shouting at me, I have too many bad habits and am hence not terribly good!  Still, when the weather is good, it makes for pleasant exercise - roaming the countryside looking for lost balls!  


Living History
I am involved with a registered charity who's aim is to educate the public in how people lived in the late C16th an early C17th.  annual displays are undertaken by volunteers for Schools and the public.  More information about this charity can be found at


Working in the IT industry is a bit of a bonus for me, as it means I am paid for one of my hobbies!  Fortunately at home there is less stress!  I enjoy building, repairing and configuring PCs and Servers.  If I had more time I would like to learn Visual Basic.  My favourite games tend to be strategy or Role Playing Games. My favourite game is an on-line adventure game called Everquest and there is a whole section of the website devoted to this - follow the link.....


any destination which is warm and offers great diving is on places to visit!  I enjoy Tenerife, and try to get there for at least 2 weeks per year!  another favourite is Zakynthos.  I also enjoy trips to Germany, where I have many friends in our twin town.


My favourite food has to be Chinese.  I specially like spicy Chinese and also enjoy cooking it.
