I live in the West Midlands, England and was born in 1952. Although I studied Natural Sciences and the Electrical Sciences Tripos, I only worked for a year in the Electronics industry before becoming a teacher. After 24 years of teaching in Secondary schools (11-18+), I spent my time since 1997 working on IT-related projects, before retiring in 2012.
My main hobby is Scuba diving and I've been involved in instruction of recreational diving for well over 25 years to date as an SAA National Instructor.
Having looked at the Wikipedia articles on Scuba and related topics, I felt obliged to create an account to take part in improving the topic to the best of my abilities.
Since then, I've taken some of the scuba articles through the GA process and written featured content, both article and list. I've had the benefit of being able to collaborate with a wonderful source for diving-related references, User:Gene Hobbs, who runs the Rubicon Foundation. Nowadays, I tend to find my wiki-time taken up mainly on technical matters, particularly my work for WP:WikiProject Accessibility and maintaining Module:Wikidata and Module:WikidataIB, which I have worked on developing over the last four years to enable information to be pulled from Wikidata into infoboxes on the English Wikipedia.

Geogre was among the finest editors Wikipedia has known.
It seems to me a real pity that we don't do more to celebrate his contributions.
Instead the system tends to eradicate them by erosion. To me it is as if we had decided to place Michelangelo's David outside a factory in the acid rain.
It is, in some ways, worse to see how the author himself is being turned into a 'non-person'. The damnatio memoriae of Geogre is no more apparent than in this FfD.
