I was a senior engineer and technical lead at the Financial Times.
I worked on paywall performance optimisations, then led the team that implemented GDPR compliance on ft.com, and finished with a stint in the Operations & Reliability team.
Separately, I was a member of the FT's Cyber Security Guild.
I'm a DevRel engineer at Fastly.
I've worked on our Developer Hub, Fiddle, advocated for OpenAPI, and shipped Fastly's first code-generated API clients. I particularly enjoy cooking up experiments in edge computing – like neural network inference (thanks, Rust).
Infrequently published articles are here and here.
My current interests are authentication, trust and resilience.

I love tech conferences! I've spoken at many, including LeadDev, NodeConf, DevOpsCon, Google DevFest, AWS Summit, and performance.now().
