I am a software developer and manager based in the West Midlands, with over a decade of professional experience including the management of development teams in SMEs across industries such as marketing, research and retail.

As a developer I have produced software that has been used to support the business operations of entire departments, with a measurable net effect on productivity and profit, and as a manager I have built software teams and introduced companies to concepts such as source control, unit testing and cloud infrastructure, as well as engaging in one-on-one technical training.

I make a point of keeping up-to-date with modern languages and tools, having heavily used Golang, TypeScript, PHP, JavaScript, Pascal and COMAL, with a healthy appreciation of microservices, containerisation and the Twelve-Factor approach.

Finally, I enjoy public speaking about technologies that I have had success with and make efforts to be active in the local community.
