... and this is me ...
Background in Physics, Maths, teaching and training.
Many diverse interests ranging from jam making to writing poetry to fossil hunting to woodworking to Shakespeare to guitar playing ...
After trying out various places around the North of England I lived in France for nine years - and I now live and work in Wellington, New Zealand.
Crosswordwise I've had puzzles published for an android app and been in a few magazines - but I'm still a relative beginner. I'm a regular presence on DIY COW and Alan Connor's Guardian BlogSpot.
And you can call me Ian!
