I have been fortunate enough to lead a number of outstanding technical teams and have been part of the development of many fascinating products. Throughout my career I have built technical and architectural skills but have also focused on leadership, process, delivery and effective stakeholder communication. I love working with great people. I take an enormous amount of satisfaction in watching and helping people overcome challenges and grow in their careers. I believe in the power of relationships and that if you look after people they will look after you in return. My roles have varied from Technical Cofounder, Founder, Maintenance and Support Lead, Project Manager and Tech Lead. I have worked in startups, telco, defence, games and research. I started programming with BASIC in the late 80's.
