About Me

Hello - I'm Morgan Skinner

So you may be thinking "what's Mebyon Kernow", or maybe you've already searched for it on the web and found a political party. I have no affiliation with these folks, I use the moniker here as it means "Sons of Cornwall", and as that's what I am it seems apt.

The picture on the masthead is that of Grampus - a small aluminium dinghy I own which has been in the family for as long as I can remember and now I'm its custodian. I don't live anywhere near Cornwall these days (sniff) but try to get back home a couple of times a year and head out on the river for some fun.

I'm now an Application Development Consultant and have worked for Microsoft in the UK since December 2001 - prior to that I worked my way up to the position of Development Manager for a small software house in Altrincham that wrote Laboratory Information Management Systems. I was there for 12.5 years - as you can tell I don't change jobs much!

I'm currently a Senior 2 grade, but the lads in the team are all behind me getting promoted (and to be fair have been since I started on a much more lowly grade) as then I'll be able to at last call myself - "Principal Skinner". So, if you like the blog please feel free to post comments that I can pass up the chain of command. Every little helps!

And finally it would seem that I have to include some legalese here, so fill yer boots here.
