I am a software developer in Amsterdam, Netherlands and this is my personal site where I document my thoughts and experiments. In the past, I’ve worked for RMIT University, Accenture, Cricket Australia, HP, Oxfam and currently work as a Technical Lead at IBM.

Most my childhood was spent fiddling with a 40MHz 386DX to free up that 640kb to play games, and writing viruses to play pranks on friends which got me in trouble sometimes with my parents. I also built a website for my family on Geocities in 1998 which got me out of trouble with my parents.

I’m passionate about open source and Agile, when not writing software, I enjoy cooking, painting, reading sci-fi and working on hardware projects.
