Howdy! I'm a software developer; I work for TotallyMoney as a front-end / native app software developer, primarily using React and React Native. I live in West London, and completed my degree in Computer Science from Brunel University London in July 2017.

While most of my time is spent in front of a laptop, I try to get away when I can; I'm a keen amateur runner (since July 2017), and hope to start competing in some 10k races soon. Also, I'm a committed Christian and attend Crown Church. Head on over to the About page to find out more.


Assortment of coding, design, and life

This is my new website, where I'm going to try and blog at least once every fortnight; maybe a tutorial about something I've learnt over the past couple of weeks, or a book review of a book (technical or not) I've read recently. I'll also report back on any conferences, meetups or other groups I attend.

I may also post stuff I find interesting on the internet, in the format of a linked list (think Daring Fireball).

This website is very much a v0.0.1, I have a lot I need to do on it, but I think I've made a pretty good start. If you'd like to view the source, I've made it publically available here.

Thanks for reading!

Stuff I've worked on which I'm proud of

Veritas Connection Centre

Veritas17 Jul 2017 - 1 Nov 2017

VCC is an application to make it possible for people to add their own connection sources to Information Map. Currently, there are over 20 connectors added by Veritas, but in the future, it will be possible for people to define their own without any external input from Veritas.

I joined Veritas mid-way through the project and worked on the front-end of the application, which is written using JavaScript framework Angular.

GetActive London

imin1 Oct 2015 - 1 Jun 2017

GetActive aims to get people more active by showing data from multiple providers and allowing easy, one-click booking. It uses data from imin, who also built it on behalf of London Sport; imin are a data aggregator for physical activity, pulling in data from organisers including British Cycling, Playwaze, Goodgym, OurParks and GLL.

My role in the development was the initial creation of the interface (I joined imin in October 2015, when there wasn't even a GetActive repo in the source control). I had responsibility for the front-end CSS and JavaScript (it was built on React.js), much of which still exists in the codebase today.
