I'm an experienced software engineer with 15+ years experience although only been working with Python mainly for around three years. I'm a generalist who likes to sample as much of the Python ecosystem as I can dabbling in both general software engineering and data science tech stacks. Coming from a games technology background the closest thing I'd have to a speciality is advanced and 3D data visualisation. I love being on the bleeding edge of technology and always keen to find and try applying new packages and share what I've found with anyone I can get to listen.
