In my personal time I maintain my own home lab and networking environment, running on some ex-lease server hardware, this allows me to further expand my skills in a controlled environment, I also operate a small web hosting service hosted out of AWS. My technical passions include web design and management, along with providing reliable infrastructure for my own customers.
Another passion I have is working on cars. I have restored a 1966 VW Beetle which I have since sold, and am on to my second restoration of a 1967 VW Beetle which I do not ever plan on selling. So expect to see that floating round office carpark when it is finally finished. I also make use of my technical skills in 3D Printing and CNC Machining.
