About Me

I am an experienced, remote working, multi skilled Software Engineer, Business Analyst, and Electronics Prototyper, with a passion for knowledge, innovation and self-improvement. 
I have a great deal of experience across several industries and technologies.  I also work as a Business Analysis from time to time contract and freelance, and spend a lot of time thinking and talking about API's, Automation, and Machine Learning. I Mentor and Train other developers.
When I'm not working, I love to attend developer conferences, read, improve my skills, build something, or contribute to open source projects I love. I also like a good Hackathon! 
I'm a keen musician, language learner, and I'm learning electronics repair.
