About me

I’m a friendly and approachable character, with a drive to help others and keep up with the latest digital technologies and advancements. I work predominantly in Ruby on Rails (RoR), PHP & Golang. I have strong networking and communication skills, with a natural ability to solve problems. Alongside this, I am a Computer Hardware Technician, with strong ties to the music industry, currently exploring ways of embedding this into my programming and development.

Outside of work, I play some guitar, but considerably better on Electric bass. I’m a mountain biker, so most weekends I’m riding out in the forests. I play D&D, love Motorsport and have an uncanny ability to “ruin” songs… mostly be intentionally mis-quoting them.
