I am a software engineer at ImpactEd, I work mainly with Ruby on Rails. I'm self taught and have struggled through but as well as being a decent developer after more than 10 years of trying, my soft skills are fairly good. I think empathy, understanding, communication and patience are as important in working in a technology team and I think I do alright with that.

Guitar keeps me busy, with a weekly open mic session with the lovely people at Lockdown Open Mic. I'm also restoring a mini whenever I have time. I try to keep fit with a bit of running and cycling whenever I can, one day I'll get back to triathlon! As I'm also the father of 2 wonderful children, I don't find much time for my previous various hobbies, but I couldn't be happier.

I run a local web meet up group in Sevenoaks, Sevenoaks Web which sees creatives and developers meet up every month and exchange ideas and idle chit chat over a few beverages.
