I am a technology led entrepreneur and consultant with full stack experience. I have founded and co-founded businesses both in the UK and the US, most recently as CTO and co-founder of Y-Combinator backed Message.io, a universal messaging and deployment platform.
I've been writing code since the age of ten, and and created my first technology consultancy company in the late 1990's. I've been a staunch advocate of Open Source technologies and my development stack has often reflected that. I've been involved in numerous vertical markets, working with companies of all sizes to help them realise their technical ambition.
Currently based and working in Austin, TX, I am also a UK national.
My experience is broad and can be found in detail here. My prefered stack is currently Node.js, PHP 7, Laravel and React but have worked with many others. I have extensive DevOps experience, automating deployments with Jenkins, Ansible and Docker. I have also lead projects on security and SOC 2 Type I and Type II preparation, writing extensive documentation and preparing policies and standards for rollout.
