About Me

I am a software developer 👨‍💻

I have written in Java, PHP and Ruby but have recently settled on “.NET” as my preferred platform. This is mostly due to the fact I spend so much time with it at work. However even on my own projects, I now find it’s my go to choice these days. I spend much of my time working with web APIs. I work across the whole ‘stack’ from front end development with JavaScript and HTML,  to databases at the other end of the pipeline.

An ardent believer in architecturally sound solutions, I often employ the SOLID principles to ensure that work is clean, maintainable, modular, reusable, and efficient. I like to apply an agile approach to development, utilizing Kanban and WIP limits in short feedback cycles to help ensure constantly high quality. I like to be engaged with operations through automation and tooling.

I love reading 📚

And I really love books! Both technical books related to my field but also Fiction. As such, many of the playground projects littered around the site will often incorporate my love of books in some fashion.
