Location/Timezone: Dublin, Ireland

How to talk to me: IRC (strong preference), Slack, email.

Pronouns: he/him

Things I like:

  • Atomic tasks
  • Code review
  • Constructive criticism
  • Service oriented architectures (they're still cool, but monoliths aren't bad)
  • The Irish language
  • Extreme music of all forms
  • Animal liberation
  • Fermentation
  • Powerlifting

Things I’m bad at:

  • "Mark as unread"/"Move to tomorrow" forever
  • Email
  • Taking too many things on at once and then scrabbling once the pile gets too high

Annoying things I do:

  • Derail meetings the moment I see a chance to lighten the mood

Hot takes:

  • Too many for a professional setting - buy me a drink sometime.
