About Me

Software engineer with a passionate interest in distributed systems, scalable architectures, and robust applications.

Starting in programming computers at 9 years old, I have written software in a wide breadth of technologies and fields, most recently focused on architecting scalable and maintainable systems using managed AWS primitives and serverless technologies.

I have a strong DevOps ethos, preferring to operate and support on the systems I build. A self-motivated learner, I'm able to adapt quickly to change and to find pragmatic solutions as urgent requirements arise.


Currently: working at askporter as a software engineer.

My previous roles are listed on my LinkedIn page.

Projects

Here are some past things I've worked on:

Youngwork
A platform for connecting young people with the opportunities and information they need to succeed in their first careers. I was the sole developer on this project for the first year, and I was responsible for designing, architecting, developing, and deploying the application across mobile, web, database, and backend.
TISS Mobile
A mobile information portal for a B2B business, used by sales and distribution partners all over the world, including South Africa, Mexico, and India. On the App Store.
Career in Health
Prototype recruitment platform aimed specifically at the British Health & Care industry. I worked on this while interning at a reasonably well established software development company from my local area, who had special expertise relating to the Health & Care industry. GitHub repository.
SimpleShips
A basic video game made for LudumDare 28, using Java and a library called Slick2d. I made this when I was very young - I'd just turned 11. The source is lost to history. Here's an archive of the original LudumDare page - and there's also an archive of my itch.io page, where I uploaded other small games, and an archive of the blog I had at the time.
