I am a Principal Software Engineer at Smoothwall, working across a number of teams on products which help keep children safe online. We use a variety of languages, platforms, and frameworks, mainly focusing on Azure for the back-end. I also have particular responsibility for native Windows/macOS desktop clients built using C++.
I have also been the Senior Software Engineer at Vertual Ltd., working on virtual reality medical training systems for radiotherapy. The majority of my day-to-day work there involved programming in C++ for a Windows-based desktop system, using OpenGL for graphics. However, I was also responsible for the firmware (written in C) for the company's custom hardware.
I have a PhD in Computing, and a BSc Hons 1st class in Computer Games Technology. In my free time, I'm a gamer, musician, electronics hobbyist, and all-round geek.
