About Me

I am a Senior Application Developer working at IBM, I am also the upline manager for the entire application development sector in our UK Client Innovation Centre in Leicester, though I do travel around the country (and sometimes the world) by project request.

I came from an academic background, where interestingly I gained more development experience than teaching, and I decided I love it and moved to IBM to persue a proper development career. I have a diverse development experience and I'm always hungry for new and challenging technologies/projects.

I also work directly with clients, lead teams and manage people. Scoll down for more details of my skills and experience :)

I lead teams, manage people, work with client to design and architect full stack information/intelligent systems, provide technical trainings ... but most importantly, I WRITE CODE :)

Back end

Mobile
