About Me

·3 mins

Background #

I have over 20 years experience as a Senior Developer, a Product Lead, Principal Consultant and now a Senior Engineering Manager at Octopus Deploy. I have successfully delivered unique software solutions over a wide variety of domains, from medical device manufacturing and medical imaging, to mining, finance, IoT, and autonomous vehicle control.

I have worked with most major platforms and a large array of technologies, from simple websites, to enterprise scale mobile applications and advanced desktop visualization software.

Professional Life #

In my current role as a Senior Engineering Manager, I am focused on uplifting our internal teams and creating an environment within which our people and teams thrive.

I’m passionate about bringing your whole self to work and as a manager and leader, I am always looking for opportunities to positively challenge and grow the amazing people that I get to work with.

I firmly believe that in order to build complex software solutions that delight users, teams must be highly collaborative, product led and cross-functional. This is the best way to unearth innovative, but inherently valuable and human-centred software.
