Software Engineer in New Zealand

Hire me

I've been a Developer of one kind or another since '98 or '99, I don't quite remember when exactly, but Netscape was pretty big.

The term "Developer" covers many things; software design, code, solutions design, developer wrangling, testing, proposal/pitch and RFP response composition. I do all of these things.

I went down the Bitcoin rabbit hole in 2016 and I haven't seen daylight since:

* Programmable money
* Sensorship resistant money
* Trustless money
* 100% Open Source money

I don't know what's wrong with you if these things don't excite you.

I used to skate quite a lot. I will never see benches, ledges, stairs and old ladies with Tartan trolleys in quite the same light again. There's actually an interesting story to be had around how skating got me into Web Development, but that's for a pint and another time.

Although I'm now forty-odd, l still listen to noisy thuds and bleeps in the form of Techno and Trance and find it very productive to code to. Favourite artists and DJs mostly hail from the 80s and 90s although they're all still about: Dave Clarke, Jeff Mills, CJ Bolland, Dave Angel and The Thrillseekers.

Hit me up using any form of communication you see fit, there are plenty to choose from at the bottom of your screen. *
