Hi and welcome. This website is my home on the web. Its main function is to act as a useful resource for me to gather my thoughts. Ive split those around four main key areas. Dream, Learn, Inspire and Grow. These are the cardinal compass points of life and everything maps into that landscape as some combination of the four. Im currently studying an MSc in Cyber Security at The Open University researching Distributed Ledger Technology (Blockchain) and Cryptography.
This site is also something of a personal website into which I will post blogs and other things so, if its of interest to anybody else then welcome and please do get in touch if you feel so inclined. The many possible ways are in the contact page or simply click here.
