Curriculum vitae

My CV is also available in print format here.


Having previously worked as an ASP.NET developer for around 4 years and having completed a Masters (MSc) in Computer Science at the University of Hertfordshire, I have a strong grasp of object orientation and enterprise software development patterns and development practices. Nowadays I am working as a Ruby on Rails developer, and it feels a little like starting out again (yet this time around I have a few more tools in my shed so to speak).
