I'm Phil, and I'm Burscough born and bred. I'm 38 years old and have been married to Julia for 10 years, and have a daughter, Edith age 6 years, and a son, Gregory age 2
I have worked for Jade Solutions for the past 6 years, initially as a Software Developer, and then as the Software Development Manager from July 2013. Previously I was a Senior Programmer / Analyst in the Computing Serives Department of The University of Liverpool for just over 9 years.
Prior to this I spent four years at Liverpool John Moores University studying for a BSc (Hons) in Software Engineering. During my 3rd year Sandwich year, I worked in a very similar job to the one I do, within the University of Liverpool, which went some way to getting my job after graduation.
Even further back from this, I went to Winstanley College for my A Levels, Priory High School (now Priory Science College) for my GCSE's, and St Johns (CofE) Primary School as my Primary School.
I am a Christian and attend St John the Baptist Church, in Burscough where I head up all the technical aspects, such as the website, PA, Projection and computer network, as well as being involved in the mens outreach work. Previously I have also been a Deputy Warden and led a youth group.
In my spare time I am a keen walker and often spend time walking in the Lake District and Wales. Julia and I are avid Geocachers and we greatly enjoy the sporting element that this brings to our walks.
