Because famous people want to meet me.
So who am I?

Ahoy! That's me to the left, with Alestorm's Chris Bowes.

What do pirates drive on land? is basically a place for me to keep an occasional blog, and show off whatever I happen to have made, photographed, stolen or otherwise found.

I'm 22, English, and living in Lincolnshire, England. I ride a 125cc motorbike, with plans to complete my full license just after Christmas. For work I'm a waiter at a local chain restaurant - the usual 'overworked and underpaid' cliché. Musically my tastes tend to favour rock and heavy metal, but you can find a full profile here via my last.fm profile. While not much of an online gamer, I still spend an unhealthy amount of time sat in front of a tv screen, with a somewhat paltry achievements list to be found on my XBL profile. Additionally I've recently rekindled my passion for 28mm scale modelling after a few years away. You'll find a blog link for that up top. =]

So there you go, that's pretty much an introduction to me - the site's undergoing a revamp as of Autumn 2012, but feel free to have a look round anyway =] The modelling blog is yet to have been set up again, but it's in the works. For those of you that want to get in touch, you can email me at paul [att] paul-shepherd [dott] com. =]
