I love building teams, crafting products and architecting web applications. I’ve been writing code for nearly 20 years and have spent the last 10 years building teams and companies.
- Co-founder and Head of Engineering at Almanac. I built the initial product, contributed to our roadmap and vision, created our hiring pipeline and brought on 15 engineers. Together, we raised a $9m seed round followed by a $34 million Series A. I also provided technical leadership on our version control and real-time multi-user editing features. Day-to-day, I worked as Head of Engineering, leading our small engineering team to build a platform that competed with Google Docs and Notion.
- CTO of SchoolGuide.co.uk. Responsibility for new feature development, product roadmap, management of subcontractors, data quality, and delivery of 30,000 UK schools worth of data. Technical point of contact for both Rightmove and Mumsnet, two of the UK’s biggest property and parent sites.
- Founder of OpenSit, an online meditation community. It was acquired in 2017 and I went on to work with the new team as lead engineer and CTO, building a mindfulness app to assist people struggling with chronic pain.
- Wrote a Perl script at the ripe old age of 14 that was featured in a Linux magazine.
