About Me

I live and work in West Cork, Ireland.

I like to use my computer skills to help people get useful things done with computers. Currently I'm working on an open-source web application called PostOwl - check it out!

Previously I worked as a Senior Manager for the customer Support team at Algolia, at GitLab as a Support Engineering Manager and before that I was Head of Support at CircleCI.

I'm an advocate of the Open Web and open source software. Promoting the concept of a universal basic income is important to me as I believe it has great potential for improving society and the way humans care for the environment.

I've worked remotely for over a fifteen years and feel fortunate to enjoy living in a rural area while earning an income using computers.

I spend my free time gardening, walking in nature, taking photos and occasionally doing a bit of DJing for friends. I like trees and have planted quite a few 🌳
