Me

Current Status: Available in November and from January.

I am a technologist and an advocate of simplicity and self-organisation. I write code, predominantly in Ruby, but my real passion lies in agile coaching and technical team leadership.


Last Gig: Leading the Xively engineering team at LogMeIn

Through my time as lead developer at Pachube, I helped grow the team and instil agile processes and quality engineering practices. Together we developed the product through the acquisition by LogMeIn and its subsequent evolution.

As Director of Engineering Operations at Xively, I lead and coached an immensely talented engineering team as well as helped drive innovation throughout LogMeIn. LogMeIn have since transitioned their entire organisation to Scrum and are following our lead on Continuous Delivery.


Aside from work

I am married to Catherine Seay, founder of Curators Coffee.

I have lived in the desert, on top of a mountain and now call London home.

Once upon a time I worked as a portrait photographer.

I don’t ride the tube.
