Welcome to my little place on the web.

I'm a software developer by day, but occasionally when time allows, I like to tinker with home automation, home theatre and retro gaming (basically anything geeky that involves a computer).

When I get time I'll try and blog about these projects here. I have also shared some of my software, which I hope may be of use to others. It's on my software page.
