I have been interested in philosophy most of my life – probably because I’ve had some great teachers. At Cambridge, where I switched to Philosophy from Natural Sciences in 1969, my mentors included Bernard Williams, Hugh Mellor and John Skorupski.
Then in 1977-79 I did a Philosophy MA at Birkbeck College, London, where I encountered David Hamlyn, Ruby Meager, Roger Scruton and Samuel Guttenplan. After completing the MA I started a PhD with Roger Scruton as my supervisor, but life took over before I got very far with it.
While at Birkbeck my day job was in IT, and my career has been pretty much IT ever since. I’m now an independent business architecture consultant. For more on this please visit www.makeworkmakesense.com.
