I’ve been interested in making things easier for as long as I can remember. Perhaps I’m just lazy, perhaps I’m not very clever… though if you ask me it’s just because I can’t believe that things have to be as difficult as they are.
I work at MobileCaddy as their Mobile Technical Architect, and am heavily into Salesforce.
As well as being a leader of the London, UK Salesforce Developers Group, I’m an organiser for the annual London’s Calling community event, and have spoken multiple times at these types of events (inc. all four London’s Calling conferences).
My love for the community doesn’t stop with Salesforce though, I’m also a huge fan of WordPress and it’s wonderful community. I have volunteered at WordCamps and was even on the organising team for WordCamp London 2019. As with Salesforce I have also presented at WordPress events. I’m also the guy behind several popular WordPress plugins such as 5-star rated Widgets On Pages and its newly released successor Turbo Widgets.
Previously I worked for 13 years in telecoms networks as a software developer and engineer. During this time I was part of the small team who designed and developed an in-house SMSC (Short Message Service Centre) and also within the Intelligent Networks design and developement team who were responsible for services such as Pay As You Go. My latest role was as the lead developer on the in-house PCRF platform.
During my studies at university I was the webmaster* for the Student Union site as well as writing music reviews (where I got the chance to interview Roxy Wild – Kim Wild’s younger sister – and walk past Kylie Minogue – she still had a surname then – in a corridor).
This site is my home and the web… it’ll contain some of his thoughts and ramblings.
* what an awful title that is… but that’s the way it was in the late 90s 🙂
