Me and my cousins

I was born in Hastings East Sussex in the United Kingdom on the 18th of October 1974 and have Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.  I went to school at St.Pauls CofE primary school and then The Grove Secondary school followed by a few years at Cheltenham Bourneside School and Sixth Form centre.

After I finished school I went to Oxford Brookes University and earned a BSc(Hons) in Applied Physics, while at university I worked on a project with Dr.Nick Gazey of the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory entitled “The Northern lights as monitors of magnetic sub storm dynamics”. Since I left university I had done very little of interest, until I found out about NASA World Wind. I then became a moderator on the NASA World Wind Forums, helped maintain World Wind Centrals hotspots site and knowledge base, made small contributions to the code, did alpha and beta testing and made Add-ons for the program (my name is even on the credits page).

I am currently concentrating on my health and becoming more active in the charity community, I would like to give something back and have a more full life, if you are an old or new friend please feel free to leave a message below.
