May 2015 - Keeping Busy

More busy now with activities for Nottingham Inter Faith Council (NIFC) as we have lost our field worker because of funding cuts. Continuing with speaking engagements and computer work for some charities. Joined a few discussion groups on religion and society - working to build community spirit through friendship and mutual respect.

April 2014 - Looking Back

It is sometimes said that we should never look back, but that is what I have spent some time doing recently. It is useful and helps us to hopefully learn from our mistakes so that we can do better in the future.
Retired now from full time work, I am still called on for computer consultancy work and private tutoring in science and maths. Born in Nottingham, I have traced my family back over 200 years on both my father's and mother's sides all living in the East Midlands (Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire).
I studied Engineering at Sheffield, taught science for a few years, but have spent most of my life working in computing, (variously as Programmer, Analyst, Database Designer, System Administrator and consultant).
I met the Bahá'í Faith whilst at Sheffield, and after a year of investigating, declared my belief in Bahá'u'lláh. I have travelled across America and Europe, teaching and giving public talks during my summer vacations.
