About me

I am an experienced and driven developer with over 14 years of commercial experience delivering web-based software solutions. During the last ten years of my career, I have continued to develop professionally and have progressed to a senior role. Throughout this time, I have worked mainly with JavaScript to deliver games that target the gambling industry. Earlier in my career, I worked mainly with LAMP web service stacks, before moving away from web development to develop gaming solutions for various companies.

With my work I try to find time to get to as many tech conferences as I can in order to stay up to date with what the industry is doing. In 2018, I was fortunate enough to get to Full Stack 2018 as well as what has now turned into an annual trip to ICE. Both conferences were very enjoyable and relevant for me and the work I do; I would recommend both to any games developer.

I am a 35 year old currently living with my wife Harriet in Shirley, Solihull. We own a cat named Luna, who has just turned 5 months old; she is crazy but keeps us both on our toes, especially when we have the Christmas tree up! I consider myself to be a family man and spend as much of my free time with family and friends as possible. I also enjoy football and follow Aston Villa. However, I don’t get to as many games as I would like any more but keep track of the results and look forward to our return to the Premier League. I am also a keen golfer and play with my dad and brother whenever possible as members of the UAB golf society which gets us to a few new golf courses each year. I am a PC gamer at heart and really enjoy FPS games – anything Quake. I’m also a fan of most things Nintendo, I am hoping to get a Switch soon and look forward to playing the latest Mario games, Zelda and Pokémon Let’s Go.
