Get to know the people behind Live IT, personally!
I have a 2 year old daughter called Phoebe, you can see her in a few of the photos up the top.
She is full of personality! When I’m not out fixing computers or designing a web site we are usually found together in the park (if the weather is alright!) or making a mess of the house.
I live in Leigh, in Lancashire, which is fairly close to most major north west towns and cities so it’s ideal as I’m never too far away if there are problems that need to be sorted quickly.
In my spare time I love to catch up on the latest technologies and trends. There are so many developments in technology these days that if you don’t keep up you end up behind the times. (This whole website was developed on an iPad!). With the advent of easier to access, easier to use devices the Internet and web enabled systems has become a much easier thing to get to grips with. So I try to make any systems built in a similar easy to use way, a way that helps make things easier for my clients rather than harder.
I also enjoy cycling, but have not managed to get on my bike for a while now, even my tyre had gone flat!
Computers aren’t my only job. I used to love bowling and have had a part to play at bowling centres for many years now. There is a vast amount of technology at a bowling centre, more than many people realise. After successfully tendering for a contract for IT systems at Leigh Superbowl I also became familiar with the scoring equipment, and also the machinery that is used to pick the pins up and send back the balls. There’s a few pictures on this page. I think you’ll be as suprised as I am to see just how complicated the technology is.
