Thanks for visiting Futurile. The site is a collection of articles and blog entries put together using Pelican a static site generator. There should be something for everyone on this site - well as long as you're either interested in technology, skiing or climbing!


To earn a crust I do a bunch of things in the technology industry. Spanning from business development through to engineering management. Some where in there I keep up my interests in creating amazing experiences for users that make them more productive.


I love skiing and try to go as often as someone living in London, UK possibly can. If I'm not skiing then I'm either climbing or thinking about it.
