Over 8 years experience designing and implementing complex systems with security, interoperability, ease of use and clear documentation at the heart of it all. Experience includes using much of the AWS infrastructure and adopting serverless approaches as well as converting legacy applications in to a more distributed architecture.
A language agnostic developer with over 10 years experience. Technologies include Node, React, PHP & Python. Lots of experience designing database schemas and optimizing slow performing queries. Extensive experience in architecture across the stack to solve a vast array of problems.
It's key to shared success for people to feel relaxed and at home so they can be the best version of themselves and give everything they have. I get great joy in getting to know and understand people so I can help let them realise their full potential and watch them grow. Confident in identifying and adapting to a range of leadership styles as each situation dictates.
I really enjoy asking questions to help people find their own answers and unlock their potential. Vince Lombardi once said "It's not whether you get knocked down, It's whether you get back up". Coaching has the power to get you back up.
A certified scrum master with over 8 years experience. I love to be around people. I thrive to motivate and encourage team members so we can achieve the very best.
To quote Vince Lombardi "Individual commitment to a group effort, that is what makes a team work." I believe that diverse teams and diverse thinking teams create the best software.
I love coming up with solutions to problems to make the world just that little bit better. I'm motivated by having a purpose so there's no purer satisfaction than to deliver a solution that get's used in the real world.
People who know me will think I'm a bit obsessed with handler statistics, after all I did write a blog post about them. But, if you use them to figure out what's going on, afterwards your databases will be running smoothly.
I've always been keen to be self sufficient and capable of supporting the whole stack and delivering applications to a range of environments. I'm proficient in writing docker & serverless config and extensive experience working very closely with SREs to deliver the complete solution.
I love sport. There's a lot of metaphors we can draw from sport to use in every day life. That's why the teams I support get a special mention!
