I'm a senior software engineer at Inscribe ↗, where we are using AI to help catch fraud.

Before that, I worked at PredictionHealth, CarTrawler, and UBiqube, ran a freelance consultancy, and founded a startup called Concert Window.

I love open source and enjoy working on side projects when time permits.

I often use TypeScript, Go, Python, React, Node, REST, GraphQL, CSS, Tailwind, NextJS, Remix, Figma, React Testing Library, Playwright, Postgres, MySQL, all manner of AWS and GCP services, OpenAI, Cloudflare, Vercel, Planetscale, Docker, Kubernetes, and CI/CD.

Have a question or idea? Please feel free to get in touch.

  • Trad Archive ↗ (Creator, Principal Engineer)
    This is a really fun open source project I've been building in partnership with the Irish Traditional Music Archive in Dublin.
