BIOGRAPHY

Whilst growing up in '80s England, Graham's elementary school teachers said it was most likely that he was going to be either a crazy scientist or inventor. Unfortunately, his IQ is not high enough to have achieved those accolades, but he is keen on re-purposing all manner of items so that they do things that they weren't supposed to when they left the factory.

Notable projects still to be completed include:

Building a children's playhouse out of unwanted shipping pallets (it withstood a recent storm and has remained dry through the winter but is yet to be used as intended),
Turning a mobility scooter into a ride on car for his daughter,
Placing a computer and monitor into a 1950s console television cabinet and using it as a media server.

When not working on such projects Graham is likely to be thinking of new ones or watching some science fiction series or other.

His guilty secret is that he has read (and enjoyed) the complete Miss Marple series by Agatha Christie.
