About me
Scientist, explorer, writer, thinker, raconteur, collector of fine wines and paintings, accomplished musician... anything was possible for a boy sitting by a statue. Alas, this was one of the few occasions when I was to be more than an arm's length away from a computer keyboard. Details of my subsequent career in IT, spanning continents and technologies, are in my CV, available from the contact page.
A few of my favourite things:
Midnight's Children, Talking It Over, Fontainebleau: escalades et randonnées
Betty Blue, Jules et Jim, Manon des Sources
Born To Run (Springsteen), Who Knows Where The Time Goes (Sandy Denny), Clear Spot, Spotlight Kid (Beefheart), The Well-Tempered Clavier (Bach, Barenboim)
Joe Montana, SF 49ers Quarterback
The original Ambre Solaire (à la recherche du tans perdu)
Kind of Blue
