I first worked in an IT Support role while studying for my Computer Science BSc, this wasn't the first time I had helped people with technology; it was however the first time I was paid for the privilege. Through my university career I continued to work in IT Support with a year long placement as a engineer where I helped build a capability for the organization.

I now make a living as a Technical Consultant with Amido, we are relatively small London-based Start-up working on and Systems Integration projects for some of the largest companies in London and the South-East of England. I live and breathe which means I am a vocal proponent of best practices for our software development teams focusing on , , Systems Thinking, Reducing Feedback Cycles, and Infrastructure as Code. Professionally I have worked on a wide range of technologies from to with a bit of and mixed in for good measure.

If you think you might recognize my name, then it is likely we have interacted through the tag, one of my open source projects or through my time as Lead Developer on EVEMon: A character manager for the MMORPG Game EVE Online. I'm a firm believer in and wherever possible I look to release code under free and open source licenses, you can take a look at some of my work on my GitHub, Amido's GitHub and atom.io.
