Paul Barnes is Technical Manager at a family-run technology company. For twenty years he was also a smoker, until he decided it was time to make a change. Thanks to the advice of a friend and his enthusiasm for technology, he was able to switch to vaping in June 2014. Like many others he then discovered that the innovation that had done so much for his health was under threat from misguided health activists.

Since then, Paul has been actively campaigning to keep e-cigarettes widely available. He now spends much of his spare time reviewing scientific literature and legislative proposals that relate to vaping. Sometimes he’s even been known to write about the topic, usually in a lively manner.

On the rare occasions Paul isn’t reading or writing about vaping he takes a break from his computer by playing games. On his computer.
