About me..

I'm a software engineer, living in Dublin, Ireland and working for Arconics.com

Previously I've worked at Gilt.com Cayova Ltd, Cognovi Ltd and NewBay Software.

Before that I was a senior software engineer at the University of Edinburgh, based at the stunning Royal Observatory in Edinburgh, where I produced software for the Virtual Observatory since 2003, within the AstroGrid, VOTech and AIDA projects.

I've been fortunate to work with a range of interesting technologies - Scala, Grails, Groovy, Spring, Guice, Redis, Cassandra, BigQuery, Android, Swing, SOAP and REST web services, XML databases, workflow systems, domain specific languages and user-scripting amongst others.
