I live in Acocks Green B27 and I’m keeping fit in my retirement by cycling my way around South and East Birmingham, logging for OSM - editing done mostly in JOSM. I’m also adding features in Warwickshire, the Black Country, County Westmeath in Ireland and the Scottish Highlands as I walk and cycle in the countryside. I’m also interested in listed and heritage buildings and structures. In fact I try to survey and then edit wherever I’m travelling.

I have also dabbled with tracing imagery in California and Fort Worth Dallas and Houston TX. Other armchair mapping includes sporadic work for HOT projects, help with redaction bot cleanup in Australia, desert tracks in Niger, Townlands Project in Ireland and river courses in the Amazon basin.
