My main occupation is to race sailplanes: ,
but that necessarily competes with the normal requirements of life with a young family.

In 2005 we returned from New York to Cambridge, England, where I am privileged to manage the University Computing Service at the University of Cambridge.

In New York we lived on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, while I managed the technology services of an investment bank:

Technology management might be considered by some an unexciting career, but Sept 11th 2001 delivered a jolt. Here's the view of our offices from our Emergency Control Center - 6am two days later:
Before dawn, looking over the Hudson
For a while the office in downtown Manhattan had a new view.

My wife Mary, daughters Kitty and Bella and baby Sophie and I have a home near Cambridge UK in the village of Thriplow. Here's a map of the area, and also a detailed aerial photo .

The house in Thriplow has been under contruction for a while. Here's the house before we started the construction: Click here to see a before/after animation , and here it is nearly finished: . Best comment so far is from a Cambridge taxi driver: "Is that one of them new Best Western hotels?". The impact on the lane will be less when the landscaping is done, honest.

Here are some more pictures of the girls.
