About Me

My name is Paul Norman and I'm a 37 year old developer / business owner from Preston (in England, UK). I have an MSc (Distinction) in Information Systems from The University of Leeds and a first class BSc (Hons) in Physics from The University of Nottingham. Prior to co-founding First Tutors I was a software developer for new media business start up, Music Jobs, a software consultant at Leeds Business School and a freelance web developer.

This blog will generally cover solutions to common problems that I find, or anything interesting. It is likely to contain more PHP / SQL / HTML / JS / CSS though as these are the things that I use on a day to day basis. So apologies in advance!

While a lot of my time is spent doing things work related I am also pretty normal and enjoy climbing, swimming, running, design / construction, cooking and playing guitar amongst other things.
