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 as a web developer 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). Maybe I could make some webs.

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

Recent updates

Here are three tracks found on a hard drive from around 2009. It was around the time I made a hip hop EP with my wonderfully talented friend Daniel Cooper (performing vocals as Pressurefairy at the time), but these are instrumentals.


Marine Mammal Map (inthethames)

A collaborative map of marine mammal sightings in and around the Thames. Also mapping the locations of 10 tracked seals (with playback and depth gauge), ZSL's 2014 seal survey, gallery and other Thames Conservation projects.

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.
