John graduated from the University of Kent at Canterbury with a degree in Computer Systems Engineering in 1983.

He has been working at the forefront of technology ever since, in areas such as high-performance disk technology for the earliest PCs, image processing, networked computing and open source imaging systems.

John was involved with the internet from the very start in the UK when he was in charge of the software development team at Pipex.

With a strong background in Unix, John's involvement in open-source technologies was inevitable and he now spends his time using open-source technologies to produce well engineered and responsive websites.
