Scientist by education, now working as a developer/consultant. My interests include Visual Analytics, secure distributed systems, and Big Data (Cassandra, Hadoop, Spark, ElasticSearch).

I also take an interest in agile software development (or rather, how to build software well, and foster teams that build software well, not getting hung up on one methodology like XP, Scrum, etc).

I currently work in Python, Scala and Java (and JavaScript when there's no other option ;-) and am trying to learn some Haskell. In the dim and distant past I have dabbled with C, ARM assembler, BBC Basic, and Fortran 77. Oh, and PostScript:
