A passionate, meticulous and professional software developer, specialising in enterprise Java, Service Oriented Architecture, software design and architecture, best practices, mentoring and problem solving!Blog Contact
I started professional software development at the age of 13 and coding all hours ever since. I am a Java programmer by day, Clojure, Python, Grails or Android hacker by night. I currently work as a lead developer for a telecoms company in the UK, working specifically in the SOA/middleware "arena" and enterprise Java.
I compete in local/county powerlifting competitions for fun and to keep fit. Powerlifting is a great sport that challenges physical and mental limits.
I'm a keen advocate -- as many are -- of open source and standards. You can find my code over at github, Google Code where projects such as Ant TODO, Pyela (a Python Eternal Lands networking framework), and a Google Wave API are hosted.
As if programming wasn't enough, I write about it too! Everything from software design, Java, enterprise software, Maven, Clojure and Linux - all available here.
I'm a Kettlebell enthusiast to assist with conditioning and stamina.
