Exploring Future Tech For Fun And Profit.
I work with early-stage startups and SMEs as a multi-disciplinary software architect. I help build lean MVPs and evolve those into applications with emphasis on simplicity, security and scalability as core features. I keep a keen eye on new technologies and look for opportunities to experiment with them in real-world problem scenarios that I discover while consulting for startups or during hackathons.
I am good at connecting the dots in the space of technology and design and taking ideas from rough sketches through to prototypes and products. I am well versed with systems research and design thinking and keep a keen eye on emerging trends & technologies, with the belief that certain problems cannot be solved with the same level of thinking (or tools) that created them.
I’m currently a fellow at the RSA and recently contributed as a technical peer reviewer for Victor Yocco’s book Design for the Mind. I am currently writing a book about strategies for developing Minimum Viable Products.
I’m an avid photographer - a three panel photoset of mine was displayed as part of London Photowalk Exhibition 2011 at Old Royal Naval College Visitor Centre, Greenwich London.
I am closely involved with the London tech scene as a resident technologist at co-working spaces Canbury Works and Maple Works, a co-conspirator of South West London Tech Cluster initiative and member of TEDx Kingston Upon Thames organising committee. I organise Next:Up which is a bimonthly collaborative meetup seeking to gamify adoption of emerging technologies & tools for enterprise tech.
I am always happy to chat over a cup of coffee — if you have an idea, need technical due-diligence or strategy advice for a prototype or product, let’s talk. You can connect with me via LinkedIn, Twitter or email.
