I'm an 18 year veteran of the software business, the last 12 of which has been spent in technology startups. I have a varied background covering roles including developer, team leader, product manager, and CTO. I've also founded two companies. I've seen an awful lot of things go wrong know an awful lot about how to I'm a veteran of the software industry with over 18 years experience. As you can see from my resumé I have a varied and extensive background across many aspects of the software business. I'm still learning though.
Presently I am co-founder & CTO of SmartFish Software Ltd and CTO of Playmob Ltd. I also consult on all aspects of technology strategy, product management, and software development. I enjoy running workshops and presenting to technical and non-technical audiences.
I am available to consult with you to understand how different technology can impact your business, to develop a technology strategy, to build a product roadmap, or to triage your development process. One of the best ways to do this is via the workshop format where everybody can learn and contribute but I am open to working in whatever fashion you prefer. The key is to enable to you understand the decisions you face, evaluate your choices and their consequences, and be confident that you are best serving your product and market.
Whenever possible I still enjoy the opportunity to get my hands dirty writing code. When I do I split my time between Ruby, Objective-C, and Clojure.
