Since finish my Digital Arts degreen in 2006, I have been builting websites in various technologies. Predominantly though my time has been spent in Drupal, with recent times getting more (and more) interested in the Python programming language (hence this site being built in Wagtail/Django).
Other than the usual Film/TV stuff you see, I do read a good deal of Graphic Novels and books, attend various conventions (such as Birminghams Comic Con, and the more local Oxford conventions when they occur). Not forgetting a love of geek inspired music such as soundtracks for films, aswell as 'inspired by' playlists.
More conventions of course (UK Games Expo being the main one, but also sometimes our more local Abingdon Guild of Adventurers charity events). I like tabletop games with various groups, its a way to catch up which doesn't require alcohol, and can make for strangeinteresting dialogue (especially when in the realms of RPG games such as D&D).
Gardening and DIY
I am getting older, so am spending more time in the garden tending vegetables, or with a saw in my hand making things. It is very therapeutic, and saves a few quid too (which is always handy).
