I am a software developer based at ForgeRock in Bristol. I work on ForgeRock's cloud identity management platform. Previously I worked on Telemetry services for Oracle's public cloud and before that in Oracle's Cloud SRE team on node software tools and as part of the network automation team.

Before moving to the commercial sector, I worked in Systems Development and in the R&D unit of IT Services at the University of Bristol in the UK.

My experience covers infrastructure as code cloud development and SRE along with development in a wide range of web platforms, languages and backend systems, I have a broad knowledge of cloud and web technologies suited to consultancy, architecture design and web integration solutions.

I have worked on enterprise scaling open source solutions such as the University web content management system and in the process have contributed components to a number of open source projects.

My goals are to continue to work on large scale automation and web systems, and provide well packaged, documented, and hopefully well used, test driven software to the wider community. I also help organise the local Python / Django meetup group in Bristol.
