About me:

I am excited to be taking part in the FabLab Academy. I have been working with computers ever since I qualified as an electronic engineer back in the 1970's. While my children were growing up I put my engineering career on hold to become a full time parent and smallholder. However I kept my eye in by devloping interactive multimedia. About ten years ago I became involved with the introduction of Community Radio in the UK. I trained as a trainer and taught radio production skills in schools and the wider community. I also worked as a freelance radio producer.

Most recently I've been working with computer animation.

FabLab brings me back to my engineering roots - it seems like the circle is closing. And I'm looking forward to what transpires...
