Welcome to my website

A bit about me

I live in Reading, Berkshire, UK with my wife Pam.I'm now retired but when working I was involved with Computer Networks of various types.Initially I taught Computer Science at University College London and worked on the early networks that became the Internet - importantenough to have my name on this Birth of The Internet Plaquethat was unveiled in July 2005 at Stanford University.Later I worked for various network switch manufacturers, including DEC and Lucent.

Photography is one of my hobbies and this site and the site I run for my local Line Dance Club"Steps 'n' Stetsons"is an extension of that. Most of the line dancing stuff is on that site rather than here.Pam and I enjoy both walking and ballroom dancing so you will find some photos of that on this site.

I am still working on this site - please be patient.


We are members of a small informal walking group in the Hertfordshire and Essex areas.We try to meet monthly for a walk of about 9 miles with a pub lunch at the half way point.
