I'm a 40 year old (yep, 4 decades old!) guy working in IT. I currently work at Loughborough University in the IT Services Network & Security Team and have been there for 10 years
Before that, I worked at MSSL and before then I was finishing
my 10 year stint at Sussex University..first an undergraduate student,
then a postgraduate, then a researcher. During that time I fell in love, went to many parties, joined a band (Screeper), learned the tricks of my trade and generally had a good time. which I'm still doing :-)
Though just over 2 years ago things changed when I became a Dad. The world is a slightly different but better place now.
