Futurist, father, skeptic, biohacker & entrepreneur
I am a passionate engineer and leader with more than a decade of commercial experience developing software, building teams, establishing standards & delivering solutions. I love finding pragmatic and adaptive solutions to the most complex and difficult problems in the world, growing with a team I care about, and seeing our hard work being appreciated by customers “out in the wild”.
Career & Work Experience
Delivering faster, easier, scalable and secure software solutions for start-ups, disruptors and technology companies, whilst helping make our engineering practice the best in the world.
Engineering is in my DNA, with a long history of software development, cloud-focused devops and agile practices, and I bring experience and near-limitless enthusiasm to the difficult problems facing organisations and entrepreneurs today.
Applying effective analysis, design, programming and testing skills to produce software systems, while assisting with the technical direction of projects.
As a senior software engineer and lead, I have been responsible for requirements analysis, design and implementation of distributed, cloud-based (Amazon AWS) software systems, mostly in Python. I have also line-managed four technical resources, and provided technical guidance and leadership across the life of a project.
Be agile, adaptive, technically brilliant – and deliver.
As a forward-deployed engineer, it was my job to solve “the world’s hardest problems”:
I have built and run a deployment all the way from the initial scoping to hardware installation, system integration, custom code and ongoing maintenance, using a combination of Java, Oracle, Elasticsearch, Cassandra and Gradle.
