About Me

Let me sum up my life in six paragraphs.

My name is Stuart Wilson and I was born in 1977. I currently live in the United Kingdom, originally from a town called Laindon (Basildon, Essex) which is located about 25 miles east of London. However in April 2002 I moved away and now live with my wonderful wife Michelle (whom I married in July 2003) in the small historic (and more rural) town of Evesham, in Worcestershire. We have one gorgeous son called Kieran who was born in 2005 and two equally beautiful twin daughters - Sophie and Kayleigh who were born in 2009.

I am currently employed as an IT Systems / Network Manager at a local secondary school here in Evesham, managing the IT, technical support staff and computer networks of 6 local schools (The De Montfort School - formly Evesham High School and Simon de Montfort Middle School, St Richards First School, Evesham Nursery School, Blackminster Middle School, Bengeworth Academy, Bretforton Village School and Pebworth First School). A job I thoroughly enjoy, even if I do get overly stressed from time to time!

I have a keen interest in music, especially orchestral film scores, electronic, dance, and computer music (chip, demoscene modules, SID etc.), and in particular, any music created by Erasure, Mike Oldfield, Jean Michel Jarre, and pretty much anything that pops up on Remix.Kwed.Org. I write and compose my own music using various soft-synths and other programs on my PC. I also like to play computer games ranging from 30+ year old Commodore 64 classics all the way up to the latest PS5 releases.  I also collect retro computers and consoles and have quite a collection which is slowly taking over the house (much to the wife's annoyance!)

I'm a massive Trekkie (or Trekker - whatever you want to call us) and absolutely adore Star Trek. I'm very much into other sci-fi shows too including Stargate SG1, older Doctor Who, and more recently, The Orville.  I also enjoy zombie movies and shows, in particular The Walking Dead, and any 'Dead' movie by legendary director George A. Romero.  I seem to have a weird fascination with apocalyptic stories and the end of the world!!! Morbid and grim, maybe... but very entertaining nevertheless.  

Photography is another big hobby of mine, and I do try to get out as often as I can with my cameras. I also enjoy going for long walks with the family (which inevitably ends up with us going up a large, steep hill), 3D graphic design, and creating websites.

Having spent a lifetime of people criticizing me for what I do and like, I feel I now have the confidence to not let them bother me and not be afraid to express my opinions and views on life.  I'm very vocal about my views on things and I do like a good moan (in a light-hearted kind of way).  This of course has got me into trouble in the past, but it is the one thing about me that I would never change.   I speak my mind, and if you don't like it.... well... goodbye :)

The Wilson Brood!  Kayleigh, Kieran and Sophie
