Hello, I'm Ash. I work at the University of Southampton, in the Apps Management team, but I used to be an Open Data Specialist and, before that, a Computer Science researcher. I still dip my toe into the open data community occasionally.
I like making things, solving problems and general hackery. I define general hackery as making something technical do something it's not designed to do. I also rather like 'retro' video games, Doctor Who and gardening. I collect 1980s Transformers and my favourite game console is the Dreamcast.
This is my blog. It's whimsical, and absolutely nothing to do with my work, all views (and indeed horrific code and design methods) are my own and not those of my employer.
