I'm trying to build things to improve the world.

I care about human rights, internet freedom, equality.

I ❤ linux, python, crypto & security :)


I work best in small teams with a strong purpose

Right now I'm building Treasure Hunts with my good friend Ian.

I've built PGP software for teams and for several years I ran Expirybot, a reminder service to make life easier for PGP users.

I've built software for printing machines and high-speed network devices, scraped and analysed data for ScraperWiki, Shelter and Global Witness, built backends for Government Digital Service, created the whole stack for Sea Level Research and kicked off the NHS Digital Transformation.

I have a First in Engineering (Electronics) from Durham University. My CV is on LinkedIn.

Speaking & events

These are some talks or events I've organised:

I enjoy making complex ideas simple to understand.
