Hello! Let me introduce myself. My name is Kris. People have for may years called me Skippy because I jump around a lot in giddy excitement. I am an IT Technician, Football Referee, Freemason, and one of those free thinking folk that likes to talk a lot about how I lead my life to encourage others to do the same.

I was born and raised in Hartlepool, United Kingdom, and still currently reside there. I say reside, I exist there, but find myself travelling a lot for work. There is no better feeling them coming home after a positive day helping people, no matter where it takes me.

That’s Right – I’m a Tech Person!

You’re probably reading this because you’ve heard I’m quite good with technology. Either building software, teaching people how to use it, or fixing hardware that has been thought lost to the great scrapheap in the ground. That is indeed me, and well done for finding me. If you are looking for help, support or advice, this website is the main portal for seeing what I get up to and also contacting me if you think I can help. I’ve been messing around with technology since the 1990’s when I was just a kid, and it turns out I have absorbed a lot of information, useful knowledge, and incredible hacks for making your digital life bearable. I’ll be happy to help you out.

Football Refereeing Too

Wait, your still reading? You want to know more about me? Well done you! I’m also a qualified semi-professional Football Referee, registered with Durham County Football Association in the United Kingdom. Through this I have a valid excuse for keeping healthy, meeting great people and getting paid to run around fields every weekend while concentrating on what a bunch of other people are doing, and a ball, to make sure everyone has a good time. I love it!

I’m a Freemason as well

The fun doesn’t stop there. I am also one of those secretive people called a freemason, which isn’t anything like the rumours you’ve read online or seen in a movie. It’s just a bunch of people, both men and woman, doing lots of charity work, remaining civilized, and having a good time while doing it. My meeting group, called a Lodge in Freemasonry, is Strathearn Lodge in Hartlepool, and the monthly meetings we have are superb…but that’s all I can tell you for now. It’s all very hush hush, we don’t like to brag about what we do, we just get on with it.

You Want to Know More?

Wow, you certainly are getting your money’s worth out of this About page. What else can I tell you? I follow the Wim Hoff Method for deep breathing, cold showers, yoga and meditation. I do a lot of fitness work to help in my day-to-day life and in my refereeing role. I’m the proud father of a little girl called Fearne. Oh, and the house I live in really needs some love (previous owners didn’t do much maintenance), so I like nothing better then figuring out how to fix it one DIY job at a time. One day the house will be perfect.

I’m all for self improvement and living life properly. I want to encourage people to lead better lives by showing people what I do to get by. Perhaps it will rub off on people one day. Due to medical reasons I can’t have tea, coffee, or anything with caffeine in it. If you offer me a drink that contains this I will politely say no, but thank you for the offer.

And that’s me. I can’t think of anything else to write on this page. That will just have to do. If you need to know more about me you will just have to move in with me, which would be awkward because I probably don’t know you.

On second thoughts, the offer of moving in has been revoked. There’s 6 people already in my house, and any number of animals. There is no room for you. Sorry.
