Meet Martin

I'm a web developer who lives in Northampton, I like indie music, design and snowboarding. I like to mention snowboarding because it makes me sound cool. I wouldn’t want to mention the fact I like chess, programming philosophy, and math puzzles; because that might make me sound like a geek.
