I am a software engineer at FutureLearn, I work with React, Ruby on Rails and many many other technologies on a daily basis. 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.
In my spare time I try to keep fit, as a amateur triathlete and cyclist. 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.
