I am a software engineering leader with over 15 years of diverse experience ranging from low-level hardware to cloud services, Go microservices, and Blockchain development. In my current position with Clearmatics I lead a four-member product engineering team in a hybrid player/coach role focused on Blockchain-related projects primarily using Go, Python, and Java. My prior work includes building web scale messaging platforms at Skype and development of real-time video encoders, GPU architecture, and game engines.

My career has included experience in architecting and building new products, designing and promoting adoption of development processes, leading Scrum teams, building teams, and representing my employers through public speaking and community involvement.

In addition to my experience, I hold an MSc in Computer Graphics & Virtual Environments and a BSc in Software Engineering from The University of Hull. I am a Certified Scrum Master and have taken several courses and programs with Open University, Coursera, and FutureLearn. I’m also an Organising Team Member for Rails Girls London and a Mentor for She(256), an organisation dedicated to diversity in Blockchain.
