About Me

I was brought up in Harrow, Greater London and went to Loughborough University. I am currently living in West London and have a full-time job.

In 2004 I set up my own company selling laser pointers. It grew into other areas throughout the years, but slow sales brought it to a natural close.

I'm particularly interested in the Internet and new technology, as well as being a self-confessed geek and Apple fanboy. For more about my interests, you can read my blog.

Employment Profile

I am currently a Software Engineer at Zopa and have a strong record of producing high quality, scalable engineering solutions for both front and back-end. For example, when I was at King, I built a DSP from scratch (within a team). I have a proven ability to adapt quickly to new technologies and lead development.

I graduated from Loughborough University with a 2:1 in Computer Science (BSc).

From all my jobs I have experience with from-end and back-end development. My speciality is Java and I'm also strong in web technologies, databases (including NoSQL) and cloud technologies.
