About

Welcome to my blog, here I will be writing whatever I wish, after all, it is my blog.

Posts will be about tech and programming, but on the off chance I am a bit moody, there could be insane rants ending in tears and regrets.

I want to keep an online journal of whatever I am learning in the hopes that this will provide me with the extra motivation to continue.

I am the Lead iOS developer at Dennis Publishing, I mainly work on The Week and I also act as the point man for all things mobile. I also worked as an iOS developer at RedAnt, before that I worked with some awesome people at The Other Media. I studied Electronic and Computer Engineering at the University of Leeds, although I enjoy learning on my own mainly by breaking stuff along the way.

I mess around in Python, Ruby on Rail and Android. I am currently deploying most of my stuff on Rackspace but I am slowly warming up to Amazon EC2 (this topic deserves a blog post). I hate all the recruiter spam on linkedin, I hate emails, I also hate the London tube during rush hour.
