About Me

Full-Stack Software Engineer - Specializing in Mobile
I am a full-stack software engineer based in Andover, Hampshire specializing in mobile technologies, primarily Android & iOS. I have extensive experience working in Swift, Objective-C, Kotlin & Java with a high level of proficiency in all, having worked in the industry for nearly six years now.

Over these years, I've been privileged to work with industry-leading teams across a wide range of sectors, utilising different aspects of the mobile stack and beyond as I went. As a result of this, I consider myself a highly rounded developer who is quick to apply his knowledge to new and known challenges, doing so with great enthusiasm.

I currently work, primarily, as one of the Mobile Team Leads for digi.me, a intuitive start-up that strives to give people back control of their data. In addition, I also head up works undertaken by Sakurasoft, my freelancing company.

As expected, I am also a keen coder outside of work, seeking out opportunities to automate various things in life with code. I have a huge passion for teaching and jump at any chance to share the passion for code with young people especially. In my spare time I of course enjoy coding, but am also a keen gamer, tinkerer, cook, reader, writer & オタク.

I am always open to hearing about the possible next step in my career, so if you have a position that might interest me, please do get in contact!
