I'm an engineering manager, leading a team of great software engineers. I'm interested in cloud technologies, middleware and technically challenging problems, particularly those at scale.

At the weekends, I coach rugby at youths-level and effectively run a taxi service for my kids. :-) In my spare time, I'm part of a yacht race-crew and I try to get out on the water as often as possible.

After years of gestation and many promises-to-self, I've started writing a blog. To get things going, I decided to start with something relatively self-contained and chose to cover JVM Performance Tuning in five parts. I intend to expand the scope to include programming, agile, cloud and architecture in future posts.
