Currently based in London, I've been developing web applications for over ten years, over the last few years specialising in Ruby on Rails development and deployment. I'm co-founder & CTO of Catapult an on demand staffing platform serving some of the UK's largest enterprises. Previously I built an online codeschool platform as well as being the technical lead at a health and fitness startup providing the SpeedoFit swimming app & timetabling for venues such as the London Olympic Pool.
As part of these projects I've dealt with everything from the usual rapid growth from 10's of requests per minute to 10's per second to more unusual challenges such as expanding infrastructure into China and dealing with debugging obscure indexing issues.
Offpeak I'm an obsessive indoor climber and lover of good wine, strong coffee and a (very) amateur photographer.
