I've been a bit of a nomad though and not always worked for the Met Office; I started my career working in Birmingham for a company called WSI Europe after completing a degree at the University of Birmingham, I spent a couple of years working for the Dutch weather forecasting company Weathernews Benelux and I also spent a short time working in Toronto for the Canadian weather channel The Weather Network. More recently in 2005 I was seconded to the British Antarctic Survey and spent 10 weeks working at Rothera on the Antarctic Peninsula.
Anyway, there's more to me
than just the weather. This site started off as being mostly about weather
and a forum to publish weather stuff I'm interested in or had knocked together.
However, as time has progressed I've increasingly added other stuff I like,
such as pictures of my time in the Antarctic, brief reviews of books I've
read, pictures of penguins and links to other stuff I'm interested in.
