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

As an IT infrastructure consultant I am particularly interested in:

– Cloud computing

– 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 1:48.10 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 co-founding, the now disbanded, Bear Bones Radio. I helped to broadcast a number of live sessions from musicians local to the North East of England and the results of this can be heard at the archives page.

When out and about I can often be seen with a Canon 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 computer and console gaming and am interested in most new technologies. If you’re an Xbox One gamer, why not add my garmetag mpsamuels
