About me

At my core, I am a PHP Developer and Head of Department with a background in large, scalable applications built on full stack MVC frameworks and elegant architectural principles (Symfony2, SOLID, Dependency Injection etc).

I have extensive experience with software architecture and application development, regarding myself as an advocate of clean, beautiful code and architecture. As we all know, it's very easy to write bad PHP.

Over the last several years, I have held various leadership and SMT positions, being accountable for department performance, process implementation and operations analysis alongside the more technical aspects of being a Head of Technology.
