Belief

I believe that technologies purpose is to improve peoples’ lives, be that of an individual, a society or a business. Technology is a tool that when utilised properly can bring great and powerful change. I find the possibility of this transformation exciting and it inspires me to explore the many ways this can be achieved. I always seek to be learning new and different methods so that I can be a forerunner in bringing about that change.

Career

Technical Lead - Substrakt Health

Sept 2016 - Current

After cutting my teeth on a number of large scale arts organisation sites for a year with their sister company, Substrakt, I joined the Substrakt Health team. I came on board just after their flagship product PatientPack was released. Since then, I have helped produce 2 other products; Target and PatientPack Video.

I am now the Technical Lead, where I lead the development team of 4 while also being involved in the technical strategy and planning of improvements and new features.

Director and Co-Founder - Studio Bonito

July 2010 - Sept 2016

Straight from University, I set up a Web Development studio with a freelancer I had previously worked with. We started with building brochure sites for local businesses that developed into building web applications and large scale systems.

I wrote the specifications, did the initial planning, built, and delivered all of the projects within the agency. For the build I was involved throughout the stack, from front end cut ups, to building the application in the back end.
