Oliver Humpage joined Watershed as an ICT technician in 2000 (becoming Head of ICT in 2001), immediately after graduating from a mathematics masters degree at the University of Bristol. Security and networking remain Oliver's favourite bits of the job, since they're the closest IT gets to pure maths. However above all else he sees IT merely as a useful tool, often eschewing technical solutions in favour of people-based ones. He plays a variety of musical instruments, including piano and viola, which he plays in the Keynsham orchestra. His departmental motto is "Make stuff work."
