Profile

I am Systems Engineer with an interest in education and technical minutiae; I enjoy experimenting with new things to expand my knowledge, and pushing the boundaries of my own abilities. I believe the greatest way to move forward is to consistently push out of my comfort zone, and take on new challenges. In my free time, I enjoy contributing to open source projects, photography, typography, embedded electronics and vintage car mechanics.

I strive to be a quick learner, and both a competent leader and capable worker. I have led teams across Europe, instilled brand loyalty, and supported some of the greatest consumer technology launches of our generation.
