I am an experienced author, blogger, and speaker. I started my career working as a software architect at the Joint-Jet Fusion Undertaking in the UK where I spent 6 years building acquisition, control and data analytics systems for nuclear fusion research. I’ve held technical leadership roles across a broad base of the IT industry in both the research and commercial sectors including nuclear fusion, software disaster recovery, telecommunications and social media. Prior to founding fourTheorem, I was co-founder and CTO of Stitcher Ads ( and co-founder and CTO of nearForm ( I’m a recognized thought leader on scalable cloud platforms and have extensive experience in building software systems that range from media platforms through to nuclear control systems. I have a B.Sc. in Physics and an M.Sc. in Computer Science. I like lifting really heavy weights and kick-boxing when not mashing the keyboard and delivering projects.
