My day job
Update March 2013: after 19 years I’m leaving Kew, having taken voluntary redundancy. I have a few things planned, including developing some websites (of course!) the first one being a brand new concept in charity fundraising – www.apennypermile.com. But I’m also looking for new challenges so if you have a role that may suite me, full or part time, short or long term, then do get in touch.

I have a growing collection of historic images dating from the 1840s onwards, and have a long history of sharing this collection and building and participating in the online community.
