After writing my own CMS type software I came across mambo and then Joomla and decided that was a better way to go.

I went to my first Joomla Day in Maidstone and soon after formed the London Joomla User Group which has been running for over a decade with monthly meetings.

Have written plugins, modules and components. Contributed to the documentation of Joomla and have lead the CMS release team for a number of years. Recently helped with the PBF (Pizza Bugs and Fun) in 2019 and run the BF@H (Bugs and Fun @Home) events
