About

I'm a software engineer based in London, England. I graduated in 2001 and have been working with web technology professionally since then.

I founded Helicoid as a limited company in 2006. I've built 5 commercial Ruby on Rails web applications for Helicoid. Each web app I build has a mobile interface, API, and some even have iPhone and Mac clients.

Writing

I've written for: Net Magazine, Linux.com, Think Vitamin, and Furthernoise.org.

Other Projects

  • JsChat is a real time chat protocol with both console and web clients
  • Ico is an open source JavaScript graph library
  • TweetFu tracks trends on Twitter
  • My GitHub page has more open source projects I've created
