I was born an engineer and fixer; I built my first 'crystal set' at the age of 8 and immediately  began 'improving' it. Through building the first stereo disco including amplifiers and light show, 'ham' radios, a series of early microprocessor computers and writing space invaders all from scratch I was lucky for my hobby to become my profession. In my apprenticeship at EMI I was lucky to work on Geoffrey Houndsfield's first version of the CAT scanner and I went on to do a degree in Computer Science at Manchester University where the first stored-program computer was designed.

After that I designed TV studio lighting consoles at London Weekend TV's electronics division, introduced one of the first usable Word Processors, invented a new type of touch screen( which was the base for all of your phone screens) and founded Truphone, the world's first Global Mobile Phone service. I have a number of patents to my name.I can advise and configure media systems so you can share your music and movies around the house (and the shed!) and install in house or cloud storage to keep it all tidy and controlled.
Along the way, I have continuously used 'tech' as a matter course and it's something that comes completely obviously to me. I actually get saddened and frustrated to hear that many users of tech have to put up with sub-standard systems and setups - often because of the number of different manufacturers' products meaning that there is no single point of support for end users.

So I now offer my experience, knowledge and capability to help with the problems of tech in the house. Choosing the right suppliers and packages for the best broadband, the right technology (WiFi 'extenders' and so-on), configuring it all and setting up all of the other tech and connected devices to work in the most efficient way. Adding features like access controls for kids and teens (sorry, guys) and organising it so that everyone gets a fair share of the internet connection when they need it. All delivered in understandable language and with respect and humour borne of years of dealing with tech and customers.

I also do muso-level music, rock and indy mainly, cars and anything mechanical mixed in with heathy dose of politics over a couple of pints on a friday evening.

Until I find a decent photo of me, here's one of my lovely, sadly RIP, Zappa cat. He was much more photogenic.

Many people struggle to get coverage, speed and connected gadgets working as they should. The manuals are often no help and seem to be written in another language. Help services are unhelpful if they exist at all and don't seem to understand you.Many people just give up and make do with a horrible mess.

With helpful, friendly, knowlegeable advice I can get your connectivity and gadgets working as they should. I have been in the tech industry for far too many years to count and there's not much I can't get working.

I'll come over and explain in everyday language how it all hangs together if you want to know - and if you just want it to work I will do it quickly and efficiently.

From checking out the broadband, sorting the WiFi and getting computers, TVs, smart devices like Alexa, Sonos and Nest all working together, I will make sure it continues to work at its best.

See the 'services' page for much more detail.

I cover the South-East, London and really anywhere that I can offer fixes and service economically.
