I have an Master of Physics (MPhys) from Oxford and started a Phd in Scotland following some travelling. I found the Phd was not well suited to me and I left to find faster feedback in the real world. An intense introduction to Ruby on the Makers Academy 3 month coding course was the change of direction I needed.
A regular participant in hacknights and meet-ups in London I am always learning something new. I am keen to share my latest insights and have written and presented on the topic of Domain Driven Design. Currently I am enjoying seeing how DDD concepts merge with the rigor of functional languages.
My primary aim is to become a software craftsman and to build the future of the web.
Outside of programming, I enjoy surfing, Terry Pratchett and Dartmoor.
