Good news - we're open for limited services in Wembley. Ujima House is now actively under refurbishment and we'd love your help in making the space the best it can be.

Please pay attention to the main LHS mailing list or pop into our #london-hack-space IRC channel and say hello.

During this interim period donations and continued membership are greatly appreciated while we transition to our new space.

I'm passionate about electronics and robotics and wish I had more time to indulge my hobby and tinker. However I have a very demanding job in IT for a large global digital agency so my tinkering is banished to weekends and late nights.

My dad was an engineer and I had a ZX81 when I was 11 which jump started my interest in electronics, which I then studied Electronics at Southampton University in the late 80's and loved it. I ended up with a career in web development, but I would have loved to have worked for a large robotics company.

I built robots for various school and university projects and this continues as a hobby.

I currently have a small collection of home built and bought robots, including a 3Pi, a scratch build two wheel balancing robot, an antique 6DoF hydraulic arm and a RoboNova biped. I'm also in to Arduino and Raspberry Pi and tinker with various other projects based around AVR microcontrollers.

I also have a fascination for lasers and have built a number of laser projectors, with various levels of success.

I've started a blog : http://blog.mostlyrobots.net/
