I'm a full stack .NET developer with several years of experience in front-end technologies and back-end development. I have extensive experience in building complete, scalable web applications, APIs, databases and user portals from the ground up. I am experienced in designing and launching new sites, systems integration and leading teams and projects via the Agile process to deliver client solutions within agreed deadlines. I have a passion for learning and enjoy creative problem solving.

I aim to stay as current as possible with new technologies, whilst ensuring I utilise more generalised approaches, such as design patterns, OOP & TDD principles to my work.

Interests

In my free time, I enjoy a variety of hobbies! I enjoy the outdoors and being active – hiking, running, kayaking, climbing/bouldering, yoga, tennis and just generally travelling and exploring. I’ve played the guitar since I was quite young, but also really enjoy trying out new instruments. I train and compete in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and other grappling arts i.e. wrestling and judo. I also speak French and have a strong passion for learning languages and learning just about anything new and interesting!

In the future I would like to learn how to sail, continue working towards a Private Pilot’s Licence and find more sustainable and meaningful ways to explore the world.
