I'm a Senior Developer at Scott Logic, based in Newcastle.

I've been hooked on software engineering ever since I watched GoldenEye as a teenager and I'm passionate about Java, Kotlin and Python.

My interests lie within search engines, distributed systems, microservices and cloud computing.

I'm the proud father of two rescue cats, Olive and Ziggy, commonly known as Cutie-Cat and The Tron.
