A little bit about me...

I have over 20 years experience in the software delivery industry with some of the most technologically advanced companies in Ireland, in industries as varied as Banking, Education, Gambling, Insurance and Fleet management. I have experience working in Scrum, Agile and KanBan methodologies across different platforms and I have team lead experience leading offsite teams in locations such as India and Bulgaria.

I am qualified from the UX Design Institute here in Dublin and also from the Dublin Institute of Design where I studied responsive Web Design. I am also a keen photographer and a member of Malahide Camera club, where I serve on the Education committee, and I have been published by Lonely Planet and some of the national newspapers.
