I am currently training as a Patent Attorney in Southampton, UK @dyoungip and have a background in Electronic Engineering @unisouthampton, computer security and consultancy @BAESystemsplc & @mwrinfosecurity, and have pursued post-graduate studies in Intellectual Property Law at Queen Mary University of London.

I have founded, advised and influenced a number of startups @eminode@lastmarchgames@UniMediaMash & @trackstackhq, among others, and published a book entitled “Programming: A Primer” @CodingPrimer with Imperial College Press.

I’m a Christian believer and a Partner at Christ Church Southampton @ccsoton. In addition, I’m also part of Southampton @Conservatives and am passionate about making a real and positive difference in my local area and in Britain as a whole. I am an Editor at the Leonards Review @lensreview_ where my primary expertise is in IP law, business, innovation, economic policy and international trade. I spend some of my spare time leading a charitable think-tank called The Cycle Project @jointhecycleproject with the aim of making Southampton the most cycle-friendly city in the UK.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my friends, studying the Bible, apologetics, politics & current affairs, economics, investment and philosophy; cycling; bouldering; and listening to classical music.

This blog is a summary of various thoughts, ideas and approaches to issues which are important to me. It’s largely my own opinions which I hope you find interesting and helpful.

Feel free to get in touch with me if you have any comments.
