and welcome to my personal web pages, which contain
random information about myself and my enthusiasms. At present (July 2006), these pages are very much 'under construction'.....
In my first career I spent many years as a musician
with the occasional foray into plumbing,
and my second career was spent as a research physicist,
which has evolved into my current job as a teaching fellow in
laser physics at Manchester University. I also have a third spare-time career as
sole proprietor of Orrelwood
Waterworks, a company that designs and manufactures innovative illuminated water
features. This watery venture provides a satisfying synthesis of the
creative and technical streaks of my nature.
Anyway as Meher Baba said: "Don't worry, be happy!"
