I am an experienced developer and technical lead working principally on the Microsoft stack, predominantly service side.

I have over 10 years experience working in financial services technology both as a sole contributor and as a manager and technical lead.

My main areas of professional interest are: efficiency (individuals, teams, practices and processes), services (I know a great deal about WCF and am a practitioner of the iDesign method), Microsoft Excel (I've spent a lot of time wrangling trader spreadsheets and cut my programming teeth on VBA) and teaching others.

Outside of work I have a wife (Sophie) and 3 young kids (Samson, Gabriel and Meadow) and we live in Bournemouth on the South Coast of England. In my spare time I love coffee, red wine, skiing, rugby, cricket and running.

I'm generally available for contracting roles (.NET developer/ team lead), consultancy (interim technology management) and training (Excel) so if you'd like to get in touch with me to discuss your requirements click on the Social links below or download my professional CV and use the contact information in there.
