High-flying & motivated systems architect with a strong background in various programming languages. Unwavering passion for low latency, high throughput software and the free and open-source philosophy. Thrives in fast-paced, pressuring environments.


Blueprints and constructs digital playgrounds with an eye for scalability and resiliency. Forsees systemic demands and weaves high-performance solutions into the core of any output. Architectural virtuoso with a penchant for designing frameworks that endure the test of traffic and time.

Mastermind behind the overhaul of many legacy systems across tenures, seamlessly integrating new paradigms without downtime.


Codesmith with a polyglot portfolio, adept in the dark arts of functional conjurations. Transforms abstract ideas into concrete reality through the power of code.


Provides an infectious enthusiasm for system administration driven by a yearn for predictable and reproducible environments, and staunch advocation for immutable and declarative systems.

Due to a story for another time involving Netflix and IPv6, also an inadvertent member of RIPE NCC and operator of a local ISP serving a small suburban community in Northern England, picking up valuable experience setting up a highly available networking stack with Juniper and Ubiquiti hardware.


A disciple of the FOSS movement, represented qualitatively by the GitHub links in the SEE ALSO section, almost all code written for personal use ends up upstreamed or in the public domain.

Though professional contributions usually focus around systems and software architecture to empower teams, being a software developer at heart means there isn't a codebase that can't be tackled as and when needs must.


Passionate about a variety of interests, some might say a serial hobbyist, but always eager to try and learn new, strange and exciting things. Actively involved in the community as a regular volunteer for local initiatives.
