About meI am just a simple country boy now living in London, working as a civil servant in the Department of Education.

In the early 1980s I completed a Bachelors degree, and then a PhD, in English, specialising in medieval literature. Then, after a sort of road to Damascus moment in the early 1990s I completed a Bachelors degree and then PhD in Mathematics.

Remaining a sucker for punishment I have just completed a Bachelors Degree in History, too.
