I am a London-based baritone, writer and programmer. Underpinning all my activities is a keen interest in language and languages.
As a programmer, my academic background in computer science, including a PhD on virtual machines, has led to work on a wide range of commercial projects (as SC3D) and free software (I am a Debian Maintainer and GNU Maintainer).
As a singer, I am a lay clerk in the choir of Westminster Cathedral, and pursue a varied freelance consort and solo career.
My published writing ranges from translation of theoretical computer science to song lyrics. A mock–mock-epic in verse and a new sort of diary are both available to buy in beautiful hand-made editions. I also work as an editor and proofreader.
Do tell me about anything here that intrigues or entertains you, or that is confusing or doesn’t work, and please point out any errors you find.
Thanks to all those who have criticised and advised, especially Alistair Turnbull, Silvia Polverini, Jeremy Douglas, Eugenia Cheng, Donald McFarlane, Lina Christopoulou, Basil Rose, Eleanor Franzén, Toby Watkin, Donna, Catherine Heyrendt and Katia Bakalova.
