I've been hanging out on the internet as IckleTayto in one form or another since 1995.

Since 1995 I've been studying communications, both the practical side of media (film, photography, editing etc) and the academic side (mostly Science Communication). My Masters research looked at science communication online, with a focus on curated Twitter accounts. 

In my day job I work in the financial services - I do love a good spreadsheet. In the evening's and weekends I get to let my nerd side out - running Skeptics in the Pub, Geeks Go Gaming and occasionally getting involved with con-running. 

My passions are science, films, tv shows, spreadsheets, boardgames and books.
