I'm originally from the seaside town of New Brighton in England, near Liverpool (Its where the Ferry 'Cross The Mersey used to go, if you know the song). I moved out to the Silicon Valley a few years ago.

My job is verification and modeling of complex ASICs. We use Perl for almost everything: writing tests, running tests/regressions; even our testbenches are written in Perl. Well: not quite everything: we still do our "C models" in C :-(.

I could give an extensive bio here, but its easier to refer you to one I created earlier.
