My name is Ian Atkinson and I live and work in Leeds in the North of England. I have a wide range of interests including leatherwork, woodwork, DIY, photography, history, genealogy, martial arts and guitars.
I am pictured above in Yellowstone National Park in America in 2010 (I’d use a more recent photo only I’m fatter and balder now).
My leatherwork business is at the Leodis Leather Website
See some old photos of Garforth with comparisons
Take a look at some of my photography in the gallery
There are a handful of tutorials in the computing section

Professionally I am a Senior Infrastructure Engineer working in Higher Education. I graduated from the University of Leeds with a BSc in Computing in 2003.
Since 2004 I have worked at Leeds Arts University which is a specialist arts institution founded in 1846. In my current position I work in a six person IT Services team supporting approximately 3000 students and 300 staff.
