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 a rocket scientist OMG! Well, I did spent quite a chunk of my life devoted to particle physics...

I've just started a new job doing all sorts of virtualisation and cloud computing stuff. In the past I've also been a Ruby developer and a quant.

Cool stuff

Just started a job building CloudFoundry related stuff, learning lots of interesting things and honing my unix and ruby-fu. Luckily I still find the time to do some Clojure in my spare time, sing in a community choir, and learn to play the pipe organ. I'm also getting into electronic music and synths.
