I'm a software developer/architect working from London. My background is primarily within the Microsoft based ecosystem, but I have also worked with technologies from outside of this, such as Oracle, IBM, and Java. I am a founder and organiser of the London chapter of 'A NoSQL Summer'. This is a reading group studying various foundational papers in the space of data storage (so SQL, file systems, distributed systems, nosql solutions, etc...).

I'm a keen and passionate technologist and often to be found at developer focused events, particularly in the London area. I have spoken previously at numerous user groups in the UK, Skillsmatter, and DDD events. Recently the focus of my presentations has been on distributed systems architecture, and NoSQL.
