I'm just your average non-conformist. An archaeologist and scuba diver (a sort of Indiana Cousteau if you like), IT Trainer and eLearning designer, genealogist & bibliophile.
Sometime professional historical researcher.
Also working on learning more about autonomous robots ...
Essentially, I guess I'm just some guy trying to make sure he knows where his towel is.
