You are the creator of your destiny

Hi, I'm Tim Trott. I'm an experienced Software Engineer in Glasgow, Scotland, with a love for Photograpy, Space, UX and internet security.

My goal here is to share my experiences, knowledge, photography, and help people through writing articles and tutorials. I like to write about computers and technology, photography and astronomy, travel and cooking.
