A little bit about me.

I’m a Software Engineer from County Armagh, Northern Ireland and an entrepreneur. I founded Relative in 2018 to create modern cloud-native software using agile methods, and we’ve grown to a team of over a dozen people. My aim was to be the employer I’d always wanted to work for. I wanted to do the things that companies I’d worked for weren’t doing – and some things that they were.

I’ve been writing code since I was about 12. I started with QBasic in MS-DOS on an old hand-me-down PC, before moving to Borland Delphi, then on to PHP and more recently into TypeScript and React.

I have chronic imposter syndrome, perpetual writer’s block and, according to my wife, impossibly high standards. This blog doesn’t stand a chance.
