I'm a Staff Software Engineer at Brandwatch.

I'm a frontend engineer with almost two decades of industry experience, particularly with building webapps. I regularly use React / JSX / TypeScript / JavaScript / CSS / HTML and Node.js.

I've had a passion for computing from a young age, which began with playing games on the Amstrad CPC 464. This was followed by the Sega Mega Drive and then the Amstrad Mega PC - a 386 and Mega Drive in one.

I eventually discovered QBasic and began programming as a hobby. From there I progressed to VB-DOS and Visual Basic, before going on to study Computing at A-Level and Computer Science at University.

In my spare time I created Fingerjig, a game that tests your touch typing skills. This project began back in the days of Flash and ActionScript 2, but I've since rewritten it using JavaScript and Node.js.

As a software engineer I always strive to keep learning, improving and focusing on simplicity.
