I am a geek and proud of it. I love computers and finding ways to speed things up. I also love passing my passion for computing onto others!
I am a roboticist. I love robotics, getting a computer, the dumbest thing in the universe to physically move something with some lines of code, that is pretty cool. I am an expert in Lego Mindstorm robotics and have a large amount of experience with RCX and NXT platforms and their accompanying software (Robolab and NXTG).
I am a Raspberry Pi enthusiast, I have 4 raspberry pis (bought 2, won 2). I love combining lego and the raspberry pi. I also love hardware hacking with the raspberry pi using its GPIO pins to control motors in my robots.
I am a Photographer, lead school pupil photographer. I also love doing photography in my spare time.
I am also a teacher. I have lead a number of workshops in schools organized by myself including 4 film making workshops with groups of 15 primary 7 students and I am currently running a computing workshop in a local primary school where I introduce them to MIT Scratch and then onto robotics with lego Mindstorms.
I am Dalriada Schools founder of the robotics club and captain of the senior (the competing team) robotics club and lead teacher for the junior robotics club.
We have won the FLL Northern Ireland Technical Design award 2012 and came 1st in our category in the UK wide PA Consulting Raspberry Pi competition with our pill dispenser.
Thats it, there isnt much more to say about me.
