    • Martin is a passionate armchair politician, and is intending to eventually become Prime Minister (though he'll need to do significantly better than this first attempt). Until then, between his other responsibilities of being a dad and a DIY virtuoso, he cobbles together a living by "pulling a thread of order from the tangled web of digital chaos".
