By day I'm a Software Engineer and DevSecOps Consultant, and I've had the pleasure of being employed and contracted to multinationals, enterprises, production studios, startups, and agencies. During this time I've grappled with a variety of technologies in a variety of environments, including Healthcare, SaaS, and Finance.
Outside of the office I'm an avid runner, photographer, reader, dreamer, and an aficionado for the oxford comma. I enjoy getting to grips with politics and current affairs - especially where there's a diplomatic or security angle..
Due to personal circumstances, I've become a big advocate for improving the mental health dialogue in the Tech industry, and breaking down stereotypes that are often sold to younger developers of running on "all-nighters" and caffeine. If this is something that strikes a chord with you, then please get in contact!
Since abandoning the comfort of a full time position and the continuity of a single team, I've also realised I've lost one of the more satisfying perks of a job: mentoring. The thrill of helping and actively taking a roll in someones personal and professional development is amazing, and I'd love to experience it again.
If you're beginning a journey in software development, feel worried about interviews, or simply need some need some words of advice then feel free to ping me an email.
