Career Profile

I am an experienced development manager working in the online gaming and gambling industry. I have a proven track record of delivering scalable software solutions in a highly regulated market. I push developers to write better code and promote a disciplined approach to engineering focusing on clean software that is well documented and and well tested. I believe in predictability over speed; automating everything; and breaking projects down in to testable, demonstrable, and achievable units. I have experience working directly with large customers and reporting into senior management.
