I help organisations grow and improve their technology and systems. I’ve led and hired teams, migrated clients and employers to AWS, designed and built and operated robust production web services, and dealt with due-diligence and compliance work with a particular focus on GDPR and PCI-DSS.
I’m the VP of Engineering at Payoneer Merchant Services. Previously I was an Engineering Manager at Canonical, where I was part of the Snap Store team serving thousands of Snaps used by millions of people, and led the Launchpad team. Prior to that I was the CTO at LaterPay, a payments startup based in Germany, and Head of Systems at Taptu, a mobile search engine.
I also run Moorhen Solutions Ltd., a micro-consultancy helping businesses grow and scale their technology and systems, as well as training and due-diligence work.
I’ve given a number of talks, and I’m eager to do more. I’ve spoken about a range of subjects, from an introductory Python tooling talk at PyDiff, to avoiding harmful hiring practices at PyCon UK. If you’d like me to speak at your event, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’ve been using Python since around 2010.
