I'm a technical lead and software engineer, with a background in consultancy and performance engineering.
At the moment I'm taking a few months of sabbatical, after nearly 10 years in the industry, in order to find some time for side projects and visiting my family halfway around the world.
I'm a frequent volunteer at technical events, and enjoy being a part of the local technical community. At the moment I'm splitting my time between Manchester, UK, and Hamburg, DE.
I try and travel when I can find the time; when I can't I spend whatever time I can exercising, outdoors, brewing beer, and working on side projects. Sometimes I try and learn German, which is going slowly.
