Hello. I’m Charles, a digital worker from the United Kingdom. I’ve been helping organisations do digital since 1994.

I like:

I currently work with an environmental education charity founded in 1943. We have field centres and learning locations throughout England, Scotland, and Wales.

I have previously worked with wildlife conservation charities, environmental data centres, major theme parks, globally famous tourist attractions, a performing arts festival, a high street bank, an arts and technology college, a local community centre, a London cathedral, and a spice island hotel in Zanzibar (among others).

I have worked as a digital services manager, a technical lead, a developer, a graphic designer, a web designer, a biodiversity data manager, a GIS wrangler, a teacher, an IT technician, and a CIC director.

I am privileged to have worked over two decades for charities and non-profits.

Fun facts: I am GitHub user #176 and Stack Overflow user #1944. My greatest claim to fame is a letter published in issue 71 of Sinclair User magazine, February 1988. It's all been downhill from there.

This is a web page.

There’s not much here.

Just words and a few icons.

The words are marked up in HTML and styled with CSS. There's a smidgen of JavaScript and a webfont, too.

The web page was uploaded via FTP to a web server based in Lancashire, England.

You’re reading it wherever you are.

And that’s still pretty cool.
