Who is Mike Porter?

One man and his dog: mykp.co.uk“Hello there!” Mike Porter here!

So, who am I? What do I do? Why do I do it? and why is this page here?

My name is Mike Porter and I was born in the town of Smallbridge, Lancs, which is located between Rochdale and Littleborough in Lancashire (I know its now Greater Manchester, but I know what it says on my Birth Certificate).

For most my life I lived and worked around the Rochdale area, mainly in Heywood, Lancs but I have also lived in Barrowford near Burnley and Akashi City in Japan.

For the past 19 years I have worked for myself doing computer and web related stuff. Everybody thinks its easy being your own boss, it aint and if you arent working you arent earning… However I’m still here 🙂

What do I do in my spare time apart from look after this website?

I spend a lot of my life either working, walking my dog or enjoying life with my girlfriend. I love Cornwall and ultimately would love to move down near Pendeen, St Just or Lands End. However somewhere near the sea would be ideal.

In addition to all the above I am a massive photography fan and where-ever I go at least one of my camera’s goes with me. Some of my photography is here on this site, so you can have a look and tell me how good or bad I am! 🙂 Not that I care! 😛

My favourite music is a pretty pathetic mix of New Order, Old School Techno, The Presidents of the USA and Depeche Mode, but generally there is very little I wont listen to at least once. I have also discovered recently that I am a ELO and YES fan! Now theres a surprise.

Anyway, thanks for reading this, but thats enough of me waffling on about myself for one page, theres plenty more stuff on all the other pages in this site, so dont be shy and go read some of it.

Cheers Mike.
