In more recent years it has evolved into a way to explore ideas and thoughts about life and technology.

My bikes through the years!
Travel has been a big part of my experience hence I have written plenty about it. After a bike trip across the Highlands of Scotland in 2006, I wrote up a journal of the trip. This sparked an ongoing interest in journal writing.
In 2007 I went on a bike tour around the world with some mates, keeping a blog, shooting film footage and images. The process of documenting whilst travelling resulted in an interest in digital media and editing.
My bike travels led me to Tbilisi, Georgia and partnered with a local guide I met to run some bike tours. This along with a need to earn money to continue travelling led to an interest in “micro-business”. I also used my technical skills to make websites and do photography to earn some travel money.
After a further cycle tour in Mongolia in 2010, I returned to the UK and studied a Masters in Design Critical Practice from Goldsmiths in London, due to a long-held desire to study the arts and an inspiration for further learning from the travelling. This study experience also influenced my writing and thinking.
In 2014 I stayed as an artist and technical coordinator at the Joya Arte E Ecologia artist residency in Spain, including doing a journey with an environmental and artistic theme.
Since then I have spent further time in Georgia, but more recently I’ve work as a developer, for local government and in my present role for Avon (yes that Avon).
I’ve written a series of books about my travel experiences
