In my own time I volunteer photography to capture life in my local community. I display photos on (a free photo gallery) and Facebook so people can down load a copy; if anyone does not want a photo to be in the public domain just email me a request to remove it. I feature in the University of York #HumansOfYork Facebook series; human No.52 dated 22 December 2014. I contributed photos to the University of York Monopoly set. Photos of an event organised starting and ending at the University of York: my celebration for those who took part: York Plusnet Marathon 2016 and 10 mile race. I love sport and getting fit makes my brain function in a more disciplined way. With many staff and students from the University - I take part in the York Parkrun 5k - High Hoops hula hooping classes to music (circus skills really) which improves multitasking and enables me to switch off parts of my brain - University of Taekwondo Club with Master Alan Sparks (7th Dan and specialist in teaching self defence).
