My name is Jon Whiteside, and I am an IT consultant, specialising in bespoke monitoring systems. I also do sysadmin work on Windows systems, and was an aircraft engineer in the Royal Air Force before that, so am also a mechanical engineer.

I’m a keen Xbox 360 gamer, love gadgets and tech, and am also a karate instructor with the club GKR, and teach as often as my job lets me (Shift work is annoying at times!).

I’m married to Jacqui, and we have two ‘children’, Mimi the dog and Bailey the cat!!
