Software engineer experienced in leading the design, delivery and operational monitoring of software development projects, with a focus on creating scalable and reliable solutions for high traffic services across a range of technology stacks while fostering a team environment that focuses on support and collaboration between members.

As a technical lead I am well accustomed to collaborating with management and engineering peers on cross organisational projects and resulting sprint & quarterly planning. As a lead I also believe one of the core focuses should be on developing and supporting team members as a well run and confident team is the key to delivering successful and innovative projects.

I continuously focus on trying to improve my engineering knowledge and exposure to new technologies through home labs, rss feeds, online courses, personal projects and meetup events.
