I’ve been working on commercial software since the late 1990s. Back then TDD was something you studied but never did, pipelines were something that carried oil and agile and lean were words used to describe gymnasts. In 2006 I joined a startup and worked there for 9 years which included several major rewrites, a cloud migration and an Agile transformation. In 2015 I joined ThoughtWorks and I’ve since worked on several major projects on several very different technology stacks. Every day in my job I see things surprise me, shock me, disappoint me and often delight me!

Since spring 2018, after seeing an inspiring talk at a conference, I've become an enthusiastic quantum computing researcher in my spare time. This has led me to such things as organising a quantum hack day and talking at several conferences about quantum - the most exciting stuff I've done in my career. I'm fortunate to work for a company like ThoughtWorks who regard this type of hobby as part of my job.
