My work

I apply my degrees in psychology to computing and Internet projects. I've worked as a developer, UX designer, analyst and consultant on other people's projects.

Tell Me When

I have a built a prototype of a system that makes sure I don't miss my favourite TV programmes.

I tell it what (e.g., Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled) or who (e.g., Matt Damon) I am interested in, and it lets me know when something matching my interests turn up in the schedule. [Drupal 7 on AWS]
