Give me a little time... I don't immediately shine, but I may surprise you given the chance.
I moved to Sunnyvale from Cambridge (UK) in Jan 2005, quite a big move for someone that never did take too many risks. Part of the credit/blame goes to a wonderful guy Pete, meeting him in Feb of 2004 and the subsequent friendship inspired me to take a risk or two :)
So here I am looking forward to learning a whole lot more about this area, and I guess about myself. I am pretty much open to friendship with most people, just be nice :o)
