I am a creative, logical and motivated Senior Software Engineer/Programmer, who has over 10 years experience but hasn't stopped having a passion to learn new technologies. My experience covers web and application development, database architecture, data manipulation, client relationships, project and line management.
I have a proven track record of delivering reliable, well-tested solutions within the required deadlines, whilst managing team-members and other responsibilities. I adhere, as much as possible, to using appropriate design patterns, following the single responsibility principle.
As well as doing the day job, I like to give back to the community by responding to questions on StackOverflow and write packages available to the public on Github.
