Based near Aberdeen Scotland, I currently work for Advanced as an Principal DevOps Architect.

I'm a hardworking, organized and motivated software architect with 16+ years experience designing and supporting large scale enterprise applications on a variety of platforms and technologies including AWS, Node.js, Progress OpenEdge, C#, SQL Server and Java.

I have strong problem solving skills and am an advocate of best practices and coding standards. I believe if your going to do something, then do it to the best of your abilities.

I enjoy working within a team and have experience leading teams of developers using traditional and agile methodologies to meet tight deadlines.

During my spare time, I also seek to continually improve my skills and knowledge and as such I enjoy learning about new emerging technologies. I'm always playing around with something looking to see what benefits it could bring.

My other interests include gaming on the PS5, watching movies and spending as much time as possible with my wife and two sons.
