Since its creation, Phil Walton has been using Joomla moving his client base away from his own primitive CMS to Joomla!

Phil is involved in a few departments and initiatives, enjoying the community aspect of Joomla and learning much through the kindness of others.

A member of the London User Group JUGL and a developer in his company SoftForge. Phil also enjoys meeting up with other Joomla Users at J&Beyond and the JWC events.

An avid rower on the Thames, juggler, cricket fan, warm beer tasting expert and unicyclist, he is also a patented inventor and is owned by many cats that take terns in looking after him.
