My name is Philip McGaw.

I am an engineer, geek and digital alchemist. I have lived in many places, this is due in the main to living on a Narrowboat in Manchester. I am currently working as a First and Second tier help desk analyst for McCann Manchester.


You can reach me online by emailing me, or finding me on TwitterLinkedIn, or if you want to find out even more about what I have been up to; my CV.


I have a condition; one which induces an uncontrollable urge to broaden my technical know-how. Perpetually, I am learning new things and solving new problems. I enjoy when technology and design converge towards a creative outcome, preferably something that others can interact with and enjoy.


I have made many custom controllers, I have made websites… Basically, I have made many different things.

Some of the languages and technologies I choose to work with at the moment include Arduino, PHP, MarkDown, Processing, HTML/CSS, Teensy, EAGLE, SolidWorks, Photoshop, Illustrator, JQuery…
