Welcome to martinsamuels.me.uk, a collection of information and thoughts on subjects that interest me, Martin Samuels.

As an IT infrastructure consultant with one of the UK’s leading  IT service providers I am particularly interested in:

– Virtualisation

– Data Protection and business continuity

– Microsoft Windows Server administration

Outside of my working day I take an interest in sports, particularly football. I enjoy running and have completed both the Great North Run and Blaydon Race several times with personal bests of 1:51.51 and 00:43.00 respectively. If you are after a virtual training buddy why not join me at Garmin Connect?

I am a music lover and regular gig and festival goer which led me to founding, the now disbanded, Bear Bones Radio which broadcasted a number of live sessions from musicians local to the North East of England. The results of this can be heard at the archives page.

When out and about I can often be seen with a Canon 600D DSLR hanging around my neck. Examples of my photography can be seen on my Flickr page and licensed for use via Picfair.

I also enjoy casual computer gaming and am interested in most new technologies.
