About Me

vero_profileHi, I’m Véro. I live just outside Cambridge, UK. I flitted back and forth between Canada and the UK from 2001, and settled here in 2004. Brits tell me I’ve done it the wrong way around and they’d rather be in Canada than here, but isn’t the grass always greener across the pond? And less snowy.

In the early 2000’s, I ran a social media and digital consultancy, which was pretty cool. In 2010, Andrew and I launched Alfred, a productivity app for Mac, which has been voted Best Mac App numerous times since.

This blog has evolved with me since 2000, from a personal online diary into a blog apparently worthy of recognition – and back into obscurity as a result of neglect. Expect a tasty mix of topics; technology, marketing, knitting, spinning, cocktails, food and general waffling.

It makes my blog a lot more bearable.]
