Neil is a software developer professionally, and has been solving and collecting puzzles since he was a small boy. Since 2010, he has also been designing and building his own mechanical puzzles. Neil built his first puzzle back in 1985, a replica of the Holetite puzzle (Buttonhole Puzzle) which he made from some steel rod he had lying around so he could trick his friends. Now he's making puzzles from wood, and hoping that others enjoy his puzzles as much as he enjoys creating them.
Neil runs a blog which records his progress in puzzle making, and also reviews puzzles in his collection.
