About Me

I'm Gervase Markham, known mostly as Gerv. I look approximately like the photo to the right, although it doesn't show the (now rather faded) 5-inch y-shaped scar from my adam's apple to my right ear, caused by multiple operations for adenoid cystic carcinoma, a rare salivary gland cancer. You can read more about that here.

My primary identity is that I'm a follower of Jesus Christ (my church), but I'm also a husband, father of three boys, a geek, and (I hope) a gentleman. My current interests include 3D printing, hospitality, and the study and detection of logical fallacies.

I'm from a little village in Cumbria, UK, a bit south of Penrith, but I now live in Darnall, Sheffield, from where I work for Mozilla. Previously, I worked at a software company called Data Connection (now "Metaswitch Networks") in Enfield, North London. Before that I studied Computation at the confusingly-named University College, a part of Oxford University.
