I am a London based drinks writer, working at The Whisky
Exchange as website content editor. I used to be a
software engineer in
the financial services world, but after a decade the siren song of the
drinks industry lured me away.
I also like The Future and play around
with books, photography, music and online interaction. I occasionally do
a bit of recreational drinking and computer programming on the side...
I write my own booze blog over at bbblog.org.uk. It stands for Billy's
Booze Blog. I like acronyms.
I also occasionally write a more general blog over at cowfish.org.uk where you can
probably learn many more things about me, most of which you probably
don't want to know.
I can be found online under the nicknames cowfish or billyabbott. Or
sometimes meatrobot. It depends what's left...
While my name is actually Chris (as noted above), I am generally known
as Billy, hence the name of the site. The story as to why is not as
interesting as people often hope.
