I colaborate on a selection of projects with peers, and
tend to do this using GitHub. I also dump some personal
projects up there, for sharing or posterity.

Commits / Hour of the day
I have also been the Communications Officer
for TinkerSoc a society to which I am very
committed and enjoy very much.
My role was to liaise with other society members to keep them
informed of activities and to get their opinions and views
back to the rest of the committee. I have also helped design
and develop projects with them.

In the summer before university a friend and I
travelled in China for 6 weeks as a sort of "mini gap year" as
neither of us wanted to take a full year out of education.
We started in Shanghai (pictured) and travelled
to Beijing, Chengdu, Lijiang and eventually onto Hong Kong. We
stayed in a Hindu monastery, and hiked to the Leshan Grand
Buddha, explored the technology markets in Hong Kong, walked
along the great wall and ate Peking duck, in Peking.
It was a fantastic experience, and I look
forward to going back.
