I'm from Dublin, Ireland and have been involved with development since 1998. For years I worked as a freelance developer while studying a Certificate and Honors degree in Computer Science. My passion has always been with UI and UX, so to better understand this I went on to do a Higher National Diploma in Design and Media and an Hons Degree in Digital Media. On leaving college, I worked primarily in digital agencies before moving over to the world of startups where I get to focus on my passion, developing UI!
On my free time:
When I'm not learning something new as a developer I try to separate myself entirely from tech and recharge. I like to collect and restore 60s/70s race cars, play musical instruments or do some DIY. I also love playing Ice Hockey when I get the chance.
The best thing about working in Namaste Technologies:
Aside from the people and the work we do, it definitely has to be that I now get to skip rush hour to and from work which used to be 3 hours in total out of my day! The ability to work remotely with flexible work hours is what being a dev is all about. Not to mention, the space we are in - it's pretty cool too!
