Hey! I'm a software developer from Dublin. I've always had an interest in technology which is why after finishing up in school I went straight to college to study computing (specialising in software development). After finishing my degree I got a job as a software developer in the Fintech space, working for a challenger bank called Fire, 5 years later I then moved on to work for ICE, who owns the New York Stock Exchange. Last but not least, I'm now working for Mastercard. Interested in all things tech, fintech and cryptocurrency

Currently working for Mastercard developing a reverse proxy service which handles authentication and authorisation across the company.
Worked for Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) who own multiple exchanges including the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).
Fire.com changes the way personal and business customers can open accounts (which comes with a MasterCard debit card), get access to payment services and create integrated solutions.
Bachelor of Science in Computing in Software Development degree from DkIT (Achieved a 1:1 with a GPA of 77.8%). Out of 120 students in first year in my course my grades were in the top 5%.
I've worked on lots of side projects in the past, almost too many to mention! From messing about with basic HTML sites and WordPress sites when I was a teenager to some more advanced projects like what's below. Below you'll see 1 project from a range of types of software I've dealt with including: cryptocurrency, an android app, an Amazon Alexa skill, a website with a backend built in Java and using SQL and finally; a Chrome extension.
The vast majority of things that I've worked on lately are also Open Source on Github so feel free to take a look!View my Github
