It’s been longer than I, or anyone else, expected… but here is my second vlog. Deliberately very different from the first so I can see what style I prefer. I expect eventually it will be a mix of the two.
Expect the next one in the new year. Merry Christmas all x
I’ve missed video editing. The days of staying up all night putting together a StagTV news report are over and I don’t go on enough travel adventures to satisfy my editing itch. So I’m going to try a bit of vlogging to see if it suits me. I hate editing myself, but short of having anything else to edit, this will have to do!
So here it is, my vlogging debut:
A short selection of photos from our weekend trip to the place where pasties are mined. Specifically Mawgan Porth, Padstow, Tintagel and Port Issac
Times Square, Brooklyn Bridge, Grand Central Station, Broadway, Empire State Building, Flatiron Building, Washington Arch, Little Italy, Financial District, World Trade, Rockefeller Center, Wall St, MoMA, High Line, Chelsea Market, Roosevelt Island Tramway, Coney Island, MTA Museum, Central Park, Queens Museum, Manhattan Bridge and Staten Island.
In 4 minutes.

This is the third stop motion travel video I’ve made, and the second Emily and I have made together – Check out my YouTube channel for the New Zealand and Japan videos.
2015 was a year of big change in my life. Here are 10 moments in 2015 that I think sum up the year pretty well.
April: Played in my first Roller Derby game ever
May: Completed Tough Mudder, an 11km assault course
May: Presented my PhD research at Eurographics in Switzerland
May: Garden Society got a new committee and won over £1,500 to spend on beekeeping equipment (amongst other things)
May: Quitting my PhD. Long story, but in short I wasn’t happy with the direction the research was going in and I wanted to work on something that had more real-world prospects.
Jul – Starting my new job as an Integration Test Engineer at Sky UK, working on the new Sky Q product
Jul – Watching Hamilton win the British GP at Silverstone with my Nephew
Aug – Taking the boat to Bristol. It was a very long way to go, and it took most of the summer in weekends, but it was 100% worth it!
Aug – Moving in with Emily to a (very) little place we can call our own (for the next 12 months)
Nov – Winning prize at CVMP. Very unexpected, but still very cool!
Who knows what 2016 will bring!
First attempt at a Vegan Shepherds Pie last night, went pretty well. I’ve added the recipe to Yummly so you can try it yourself!
Going down the 26 locks of the Devizes flight of locks on the Kennet and Avon Canal to Bristol in a narrowboat in the summer of 2015.
