About the Author

Vervain, author of vervainglobal.com

Vervain was born in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, and still lives in the vicinity. Throughout his life, he has experienced a variety of hobbies and interests. Since leaving school, the theme has always revolved around science and nature.

Early interests included bushcraft and conservation, which later were supplemented by kayaking. An interest in electronics and radio arose after that, and Vervain attained his foundation callsign: M6WFE. Later he achieved his intermediate callsign of 2E0RPI, and in mid 2011 these hobbies were supplemented with newly found interests in Parkour, free running, and computers.

It wasn't until summer 2012 that the vervainglobal domain and server went online for the first time. Since then Vervain has began his journey into the world of web developement and computer networking. A particular interest in the workings of the internet developed, and still fascinates him. After leaving school, Vervain spent six years in apprenticeships and gained qualifications in electrical engineering, and as a gas engineer. After a spell of business development, he has moved back towards engineering as a profession.

More recently, a strong interest in retro computer systems has emerged. Vervain has acquired a variety of older machines, specifically around the early to mid 1990's timeframe.

Now, Vervain works on a variety of projects during the day, and continues to expand and improve vervainglobal when he has a spare moment. He aspires to one day create a large and successful series of web sites and applications that live on his own servers.
