Argh!! Erm... Enterprise & Data Architect, Project Manager, Accountant, martial artist (Aikido), and goth.

Also do a fair bit of clubbing and gigging in and around the scene (such as still exists) in Yorkshire/Lancashire/Midlands. Also like trance, techno etc... Have been known to wear a purple wig.

Moved to Sutton Coldfield in 2007. Am still missing Yorkshire...

2012 was a bit of a write-off. Torn (well, detached - HAGL) shoulder ligaments and capsule and subsequent shoulder operation to nail everything back in place. Whilst it's all healed now, a change in career direction has meant that time for climbing has been limited, and whilst still climbing a couple of times a week I'm not getting outside as much as I would like. Hoping 2017 will be better :-) Update: Hah! well, that was an amusing comment. 2017 brought a labral tear and detached rotator cuff. Other shoulder this time. Just had operation (Feb 2018). Back in a bit...........

Anything Else We Should Know
Ignore the grades to the right, I am merely a reasonably solid VS leader who very, very occasionally has a good day. I also climb about six grades higher on slabs than on anything vertical.
