Having started my career in Physics, I've been developing software across diverse platforms (massively parallel computing, C/Java/C++/C#/.NET/front-end and so on) for about 17 years as a professional.
I've worked in startups that have become grown ups. I've been Dev/Senior/Team Lead/Head of Software Development/Agile Coach and currently am a Tech Delivery Lead with a boutique consultancy in Sydney, Australia.
I've also acquired a relatively dedicated meditation practice in the last ten years, and teach people how to meditate regularly through classes, courses and workshops. I take a largely secular approach but have an abiding interest in Buddhist philosophy.
I'm passionate about preventing coding burnout, helping developers find their optimal state of being to support effective coding and so on - I write about all of this at codingmindfully.com - Ask Me Anything!
