About Me

I started out in development by modding games, became somewhat obsessed with automated testing and have a wealth of experience in building 3D worlds & services across multiple platforms.

Over the last decade, I've worked in diverse areas including:

  • Automated testing C++, Python, C#, NUnit, RSpec, gtest, unittest, Postman
  • A cross-platform desktop/web/mobile client C, C++ plus bindings in various languages
  • Generation of large-scale 3D worlds from GIS data AWS EMR, Python, C#
  • Spatial partitioning & resource streaming Python, C#, C++, AWS S3 & Cloudfront
  • Analytics pipelines and reporting Hadoop, Pig, Redash, AWS EMR, Redshift, Data Pipeline
  • Deploying, running and monitoring web services Ruby, Docker, Packer, Heroku, Server Density, AWS EC2
  • Developer support & documentation HTML, CSS, Jekyll


Are you hiring?

I'm currently on the lookout for a job, preferably near Dundee, Scotland. I'd prefer to work with a variety of technologies and the more interesting the problem, the better.

Remote work is fine, but I'd prefer a mixture of office/remote working once it's safe to do so.

Uni Project: Deferred Shading Dissertation

While this is an archaic university project from ~2006, it still gets a fair amount of downloads, so I'm keeping it up.
