About me

Build less, ship early, iterate after

Over the years I've had a diverse and varied career...

I originally started in architecture (the real bricks and mortar type) and structural engineering. Designing government buildings, oil rigs in the Arabian Gulf and UK airports. After being introduced to computing for structural analysis, I moved into computer aided design and then general IT management.

With an interest in design and programming and the rise in the popularity of the internet, I registered my first domain name in 1995 (when it was free!). By 2001 I had evolved into a freelance ColdFusion developer.

During my dissertation research for a Masters degree in Internet System Development I discovered Agile and Scrum. This epiphany, that there is a recognised movement that shares the same values and beliefs, was a revelation!

Subsequently I took every opportunity to promote those values and beliefs wherever I have worked and by 2014 I became a Certified Scrum Master.

I now divide my time between ColdFusion development projects and Scrum Master contracts from the UK.
