Hullo and welcome.

Hullo and Welcome!

Hullo! I'm Filip Hnízdo (pronounced "Nest") a writer, musician, (web) developer and trainer born in Prague, Czech Republic and living in London, United Kingdom.

I currently work for the Zoological Society of London and spend my time away from work writing (short stories, songs and poems), composing and sometimes performing music, mentoring young people at wonderful places like Coder Dojo London and making things on the web for myself and others (perhaps you).

Have a look around and get in touch via email, Twitter or telephone (UK) 07973532956 about anything that isn't spam (things relating to spam, if interesting, are very welcome).

Current hometime projects

  • Editing and getting ready to re-publish a collection of short stories written last year.
  • Finishing Coloured Squares - A social art project

Here are three snippets that I stumbled across long after they were recorded that I feel work well together. They're from around 2010 recorded in Welwyn Garden City though I have no idea when the last track was recorded.
