About Me

I am a Regional Cloud Advocate focusing on building out and skilling communities in the Pacific North West, with a focus on the Microsoft Reactor in Redmond, Washington, as well as a passion for the internet of things, edge computing and TinyML. I’m British, so I sound way smarter than I actually am.

In the past I’ve lived in 4 continents working as a developer in the mobile, desktop, and scientific space. I’ve spoken at conferences and events all around the globe, organised meetup groups and communities, and written a book on mobile development.

I also hate and am allergic to cats, but I have a 9-year-old daughter who loves cats, so I have 2 cats.

Here are a few technologies I've been working with recently:
  • IoT
  • Edge computing
  • AI
  • TinyML
  • C++
  • Python
