About

sirkill

I'm Dave. Born and raised in Wales. I hung about in Sheffield for a few years and got degrees in Astrophysics and Computer Vision Engineering and I've been in Birmingham ever since.

I did CAD/CAM development and automation at Autodesk. I ended up doing lots of stuff in the .NET environment, doing devops-like things, and working directly with customers wanting to machine things!

Since then I've moved to a startup that's doing cool things with optometry.

In my spare time I do a podcast called Geek News Radio where we chat about our other hobbies like painting scale models of Space Marines, video games, and not Linux.
