Andrew Moore - this is a recent mugshot (2002), though in real life my grey hairs are more visible

Welcome to my curriculum vitae. This is a simple account of a few things I have done. I have put it here because some users of the site wish to be reassured about who I am and what I write. I am currently in a full-time job which I enjoy. But I am able to work freelance in writing educational resources. I am also able to undertake consultancy through my current employers. I am particularly interested in developing educational materials for the Web, and in using Internet technologies for teaching and learning.

Please do not expect to find anything very exciting here. And this is not a record of everything I have ever done - I see no reason to inflict much personal information on my visitors, beyond a few basic facts. Writing this site is one of the many things I do out of working hours - and I have a life beyond it.
