I do lots of stuff. Sometimes I run a consultancy business specialising in text search, other times I'm a juggler, trapeze artist and stiltwalker. I'm also found juggling in Cambridge, or running a juggling festival. When none of this is taking up my time I renovate our house, cook anything spicy, drink nice beer, grow fruit and veg, read science fiction of the better kind and build things. I'm an atheist who none the less respects other people's rights to believe what they like, as long as they don't try and tell other people what to believe.
