Over 25 years commercial experience, through multiple tech paradigm shifts.. Have skills across the full stack & life cycle. Particularly enjoying UI design & dev in the new responsive world.
My other passion is music composition, production & sound design. Self taught on keys & guitar and built up home studio around Apple's Logic Pro X, NI Komplete suite & Access Virus synth.
Communication is one of my key strengths, essential for conveying ideas at various abstraction levels to project members & stakeholders.
Am keen to promote Quality & Automated testing. Was high priority when started my career at AT&T (iso9001 etc..) but with todays 'throw away app' mindset, is too easily forgotten!
Current focus area is Front-End Development with Angular, TypeScript, Css3, RWD & Visualisation, within the mesmerizing supporting ecosystem.. (can adapt quickly to new tech... my depth of experience means can always find something to relate new concepts to)
