I first worked in an IT Support role while studying for my Computer Science BSc, this wasn't the first time I had helped people with technology; it was however the first time I was paid for the privilege. Through my university career I continued to work in IT Support with a year long placement as a unix engineer where I helped build a linux capability for the organization.
I now make a living as a Technical Consultant with Amido, we are relatively small London-based Start-up working on Identity and Systems Integration projects for some of the largest companies in London and the South-East of England.
If you think you might recognize my name, then it is likely we have interacted through the atom-editor tag, one of my open source projects or through my time as Lead Developer on EVEMon: A character manager for the MMORPG Game EVE Online. I'm a firm believer in open-source and wherever possible I look to release code under free and open source licenses, you can take a look at some of my work on my GitHub, Amido's GitHub and atom.io.
