Born and raised in Bridgend (South Wales) Dave reached escape velocity after eighteen years and left to study Physics at the University of Sheffield but soon swapped to Astrophysics. Three years later he had a degree in it!

Rather than getting a job he decided to stick around in Sheffield for another year doing an M.Sc. in Computer Vision with the EEE department.

He now lives in Birmingham working at the Coalface of SoftwareTM. Dave spends most of his work time writing .NET for manufacturing/industrial stuff.
