Me and Dougie

About Me

I was born in Cambridge, England in 1958, and spent my first 18 years in the Fenland town of Ramsey. After studying electronics at the University of East Anglia, I spent the next 25 years working for LJ Create Ltd in Norwich, designing electronic equipment for education. I moved back to Ramsey Forty Foot in 2005 to look after my elderly Mum, and continue to work as an electronic hardware and software design consultant. There's just me and my little dog Dougie here now, and my time is filled with a wide range of hobbies and interests, as you will discover while exploring this site.

Session Manager

My Software

I have over 10 years experience in writing Windows software professionally using Delphi. Combining that with my interests, I have released some programs for sale. These include the following:

  • MycoCam - assists in microscopic examination of fungus spores etc.
  • G-70 Session Manager - file organiser and editor for Roland high-end keyboards

Visit the shop where you can try my programs for free, and buy using PayPal.

Roland G-70

Having a Party?

I can provide live music using the fabulous Roland G-70 keyboard. I have my own 2 x 85W sound system, but require transport to and from venues. I play a wide range of music from the 1920's to date, with a preference for the 1960's to 1980's. I am happy to simply provide background music.

I charge £25 for the first hour, and £10 for each subsequent hour. You can hear a sample here, and there are others on the downloads page.

My brother John and hs wife Lyn are the owners and proprietors of Bill Fen Marina, an idyllic location a short distance from the historic town of Ramsey in Cambridgeshire. Subject to availability, you can moor a boat here for a modest fee and explore the extensive Fenland network of canals and beyond. Boats are occasionally offered for sale online.
