Name [x_icon type=”smile-o” style=”opacity: 0.5;”]

My name is Lee Cullip, but my nickname is l1dge (sounds like ridge) This dates back to a name my Gran has always called me since I was knee high to a grasshopper! I am and have been an Oracle DBA for the past twenty something years, I started back in the 90’s, and along the way I’ve had a few deviations to dabble in other areas.

Passion [x_icon type=”heart” style=”opacity: 0.5;”]

I’m an “old skool” hacker at heart in the traditional sense, not like these “script-kiddies” of today, but  pulling apart bits of kit to see how they work, mainly with the intention of fixing it, mostly with the result of breaking it further! I like toying with hardware, software, gadgets and new technologies. I absolutely love  Linux, but have been playing with Windows 10 on my Surface Pro 3 (only because it doesn’t run linux though), but I have to say it is looking pretty slick too.

I’ll update this soon.

Skills [x_icon type=”check” style=”opacity: 0.5;”]

I’m certified (or is that certifiable) in Oracle 10, 11G OCP. I have been on a number of training courses to enhance my skillset and always try to improve something or learn something new on a daily basis.

Web Development [x_icon type=”cloud” style=”opacity: 0.5;”]

I’d love to be a web developer full time but my day job is too interesting for me to do that at the moment, hence why I dabble in the evenings trying to learn new technologies, I have a constant thirst to learn new stuff.

[/cs_block_grid_item][cs_block_grid_item title=”Photography”]

Photography [x_icon type=”camera” style=”opacity: 0.5;”]

I’ve always had an interest in photography, something I inherited from my Dad I guess. I still have my film cameras but have made the switch to digital. I don’t really mind what format I take the photo on, as long as its a good photo for my eye. You’ll see some examples in my Gallery and Portfolios on my personal website when it’s eventually completed.

Writing [x_icon type=”book” style=”opacity: 0.5;”]

I enjoy writing, it’s quite cathartic, and would love to get something published, I’ve just never had the time or courage to do it, this blog is my first attempt!! My daughter has had more stories and poems published than I could ever dream of, but I live in hope.

[/cs_block_grid_item][cs_block_grid_item title=”Family”]

Family [x_icon type=”users” style=”opacity: 0.5;”]

I enjoy spending time with my family, out walking with the kids and the dog, and when the weather is good we like to go out on our bikes. My intention this year is to take more time to get fitter by riding, walking and maybe I’ll get back into running.
