I'm a software developer, from the U.K.

I've done lots of consultancy work, was an insignificant cog in the expanding machine back during the original dot-com boom(and bust), and I worked at the grand old Internet Movie Database for five years; you can blame me for the message boards. I then spent a while as an independent software developer, mixing up consultancy, Mac programming, and occasional contract work. I moved on from there to spend a few years working in the operations section of, helping to organise their data architecture. Then a short stint at Moonfruit building a microservices team. Now I've landed at Makeshift Studios, wrangling with Wrangler
