I love coding and problem solving, and that enthusiasm shows through in my work.
I am a highly experienced senior Java developer with 17 years of investment banking experience (and over 20 years in the IT industry) working for various Tier 1 banks in both the City and Canary Wharf. Over the past 7 years I have specialised in the area of Fixed Income, Credit and Market Risk, working on low latency high volume trade processing, core technology, regulatory reporting, timeseries analysis, credit submission and workflow.
I am highly delivery focused and a natural problem solver, I bring both a deep technical understanding of the technologies I use and also an enthusiasm to get the job done. I am also an experienced technical mentor and enjoy helping others understand how best to use technology.
I have a degree in computer science (2.1) and a first in Object Oriented Design.
Quality software design is absolutely vital to producing applications that fulfil business objectives and I am firm believer in quality architectural and technical design being the key to becoming a successful software engineer. I am also passionate about code being well designed, maintainable and fit for purpose and put great emphasis on best practice design, readability and comprehensive testing.
Outside of work I am a keen runner, competing in ultra distance races which demonstrates my focus and commitment to a goal. I hold a UK Athletics coaching licence and have used this to organise events geared to encouraging runners to attempt to run extreme distances. I am also a family man and have 3 gorgeous daughters who demand all of my time when not working or running.
I am VAT registered and hold all relevant insurance.
