Hi there! I'm Richard Sanderson and mealybar is my online alter ego.
I hail from St. Andrews, Fife where I live with my wife Gemma. My hometown is south of the border - Hartlepool, I came to St Andrews to go to university, and seem to have stayed.
For fun and income I build websites. While my job title says I'm a web developer, I'd err towards web generalist as I relish persuing an idea from start to finish.
When not behind the desk in the office, more often than not I'll be found behind the desk at home working on a personal project or two.
But when I'm not up to my elbows in code I enjoy getting out and about on my road bike, taking photos of those surroundings - in the hope one or two work out, and the odd spot of gardening.
Sports; I roughly follow Hartlepool United, attempt the odd round of golf - it would be criminal not to living in St. Andrews, but mostly it's about Formula 1. I support the Red Bull team and Daniel Ricciardo in particular.
While no longer participating I still have a soft spot for pigeon racing. At 14 it spurred my first "personal project" - a pigeon racing website - which undoubtedly paved the path for my web developing career - Pigeonbasics.com has since moved on but I still keep my eye in and am developing a pigeon results application called PigeonSportLive.
