Hugh joined the team in Brighton to work as a technical writer. He brings experience from working at EA games and has a number of published books on railways. Hugh is driven by two different motives - a perfectionist's attention to detail, combined with a desire to work with people. So much of his career has see-sawed between programming jobs and people jobs (such as a pastor and evangelist). Eventually he discovered how to combine both in writing; communicating detailed information in ways that are interesting and creative. One of his books has been variously described as 'the geekiest book I've ever seen 'and' the book I have been waiting for years for... the steam railway enthusiast's bible'. Hugh's happiest when he is at home with his wife and daughter.
