Andrew Matheson Douglas

 Date of Birth:27th August 1967

University of Kent at Canterbury (1990 - 1993)

 

A bit about me - I'm 34. Single. A software developer by trade. I am Scots, on my fathers side, and occasionally I can be seen sporting a sporran! My mothers side hails from Kent, although there is some scots blood there, too (apparently). As a compromise, I was born and bred in a small market town called Brackley, in Northamptonshire. I've lived in Stafford, Munich, Canterbury, York and now Cambridge.

I like to eat, and cook, and drink. In particular, I like Champagne, and I'm a bit of a champion for English wine.

I also like to bird watch - especially at Fen Drayton, which is just up the road from where I live (Cambridge) and the Ouse washes, to see the arctic swans. Favourite bird - the Pintail, a fantastically slender and graceful duck.

I also like films - especially animations from Pixar and their ilk. Today (4th Feb 2002) I saw the new one, which is superb. I didn't think they'd manage anything nearly as good as Toy Story 2, but they've got pretty damned close. If anyone wants to see it again - I'm up for it.

Books are a big part of my life - I have a large collection of books on computing, cooking and natural history, all of which reside in my library (ok, the spare useless bedroom).

Music - that's a pretty big part of my life too. I have quite a broad interest - in particular I like the voice, especially in classical music. I love leider and song (ancient and modern) and opera - I am a lapsed friend of Covent Garden - and musicals too.

I also like modern/popular music.

Last but not necessarily least, I like driving. My first car was a Rover 214SLi 1990, which I still have. For four months I drove an Audi TT Roadster 225 BHP - an awesome car, and I've been bitten by the soft-top bug - here's a bit about my trip to Edinburgh. Next car - hopefully a mark III MR2, 'cos it is as cheap as chips and drives brilliantly (so I'm told).
