Personal information

Location: Tartu, Tartu, Estonia
Birthday: 16 May

About me:
I'm originally from the UK, but currently live in the beautiful university town of Tartu in Estonia. I've been here for the past eight years and find it a great place to live as the town has a relaxed, bohemian atmosphere and there's always something to do.

I'm the founder of Speak Languages. I set up the websites several years ago because I was disappointed by the poor quality of language learning sites I found elsewhere on the Internet and thought I could build something better. I really love my job as I get to work with all sorts of different languages, writing systems, and technologies. I'm always looking to make improvements to the sites, so if you have any comments, I'd love to hear them.

In my spare time I enjoy travel, photography, jogging, cooking (badly), making electronic music, and the occasional game of chess. I'm also trying to teach myself how to play the ukelele.
