I'm Viv, I live in Bridgend, South Wales. I write software with the wonderful people at Surevine. I ride the best orange motorcycle in the world and have a keen interest in riding standards and road safety. I took the RoSPA Advanced Riding Test in 2014 and achieved Gold standard. I practice Wadō-ryū karate at Ogwr Karate Association. I'm particularly interested in practical applications and karate as a system of civilian self defence.
