I work as a software developer for the University of Cambridge, in the University Information Service. I am Deputy Technical Manager for the student information system CamSIS.
Before working for the University, I was a software developer at Jobstream, and before that I was an undergraduate at New Hall, now known as Murray Edwards College.
On the 9th July 2005, I married Tony Finch, who also works in the UIS. Our wedding photos can be found here. I changed my surname on marriage to Coleman Finch. After nearly nine years I changed it back again. We have two children, Charles and Nicholas.
I keep a blog on Dreamwidth, photographs on Flickr, and am on Twitter.
A while ago I took part in an experiment at the Wolfson Brain Imaging Centre, and they sent me pictures of my brain. The Internet was made to share pictures of your brain..
