I am a strong all round technologist most interested in robotics and the Internet of Things, as they bring hardware and software together, enabling the digital and real worlds to combine and augment each other.
Technology has always fascinated me and from an early age, I have been interested in computers and electronics. For this reason, I have been developing software and tinkering with hardware for over 15 years.
I have worked with embedded devices, both Linux based single board computers and microcontrollers, writing firmware and integrating with external hardware and sensors. I have also developed applications targeting both Windows and Linux based desktop environments as well as iOS and Android platforms.
My experience has brought me to work on many different projects using a variety of languages such as C++, Golang, Rust, CoffeeScript, C#, and Python. I have managed projects from start to finish, developed and debugged electronic PCBs and designed and manufactured small runs of electronic and mechanical components.
Currently, I'm a Hardware Engineer at resin.io focused on bringing micro-controller support to the resin platform.
To keep up to date with technology I regularly attend a Hackerspace, go to meetups and have recently been to helping to run resin hosted hackathons. I also work on projects in my spare time. At the moment I'm working on building a smaller, nimbler Quad Rotor, prototyping a small two wheeled balancing robot and developing a Rust command line tool for tracking crypto-currency prices.
