Interests Outside of University of Suffolk

With maybe an apparent fondness of technology and gadgets, I'm currently working towards a 'Smart' home introducing the 'Internet of Things' (IoT) to everyday life. I've have setup an enterprise based network solution to cater for all of the connected devices and have many automations which are triggered throughout the house including automatic lights, an enhanced security mode when no one is home and a connected smart fire/smoke/c02 detection system.

At the polar opposite of my interests in technology is my love of the outdoors, I have a large allotment with chickens and I have got permission on a local piece of woodland where I have built a semi-permanent bushcraft shelter where I go and spent some down time practicing fire starting, wood work and camping out in the open.

I enjoy all of this with my partner and my two children, Jared who is four and Sienna is coming on for two.
