Hello, I am

Experienced Developer & Technical Leader

About me

I am a hands on technical leader with experience ranging from shipping corporate B2B software as part of a large organisation using waterfall to personally designing and delivering ambitious digital experiments with perpetually changing requirements.

I have been fortunate to work with both great companies and individuals in the past that have equipped me with a varied skill set.

I’m especially interested in opportunities that enable me to fulfill my passion of solving interesting problems with data & code.

I also enjoy providing structure and mentoring for existing teams to help them out and skill up.
