I spent 2013 travelling by bicycle and boat from Mexico to Colombia. I attached a solar panel to the bike and made a charger for my laptop so I could write even when away from civilisation for a while. I left with the idea of going to Patagonia, but I wanted to do something else by the time I got to Colombia. I would like to go back to South America sometime. I called the trip Cycle Who. I've written an Introduction, an FAQ, and blog posts tagged Cycle Who.
In Winter 2011-2012 I went to the Canary Islands to try and hitch a lift in a boat to South America. I didn't get there but I discovered the Canary Islands. Blog posts covering this adventure are tagged "serbla".
See also photos on flickr, and my twitter account for updates.
I've done some work on building a technomadic bicycle. This is a bike fitted with electronic and computing gadgets to enable a lifestyle of travel while remaining connected with technology. Off-grid with solar power and online when needed. You can see the solar power system as used on the Cycle Who trip, and some previous work with HF amateur radio.
I occasionally take on freelance software development jobs. Previously I have worked as a software engineer at internet startups on distributed systems, machine learning, and both front and back end web development. I have built a product all the way from the business model, through UX design, and front and backend development, to automated deployment and hosting network architecture.
I am available to hire now.
I'm starting to put code on github. I sometimes use Stack Overflow.
