About Me

I’ve been working professionally in the IT industry for over 15 years now, mainly as a software architect and developer.

Predominately I’ve been working with Java, so I consider that my key language and obviously now have a pretty good understanding of it.. you’d hope so after 15 years!

My specific area of expertise is more in backend systems, rather than front end development. I specifically enjoy designing and working with highly available, scalable and very performant systems. I’m also very keen on the way a lot of the industry is now heading with the DevOps mindset. Which I think is about time.

Some of the technologies/frameworks/languages that I’m interested in are

  • Oracle Coherence
  • Hazelcast
  • Ansible
  • Kotlin
  • PHP
  • WordPress

These are just a few, like a lot of software developers I’m always looking for new and exciting things coming along, that could be game changers, but also that make software development easier.

I’m also a amateur but very keen photographer. If you would like to see some of my photographs then you can visit my personal photography website.
