Young [programmer|maths geek|physics geek]. As of June, full-time developer in Econsultancy's tech team. Experienced mostly with Ruby-based stacks (sinatra & rails), but very happy to work with any technology that'd be fun to learn. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to talk about anything, though I'm afraid I'm unable to take on freelance work while at Econsultancy.

Languages & skills
Ruby – Multiple projects, including webapps in Rails and Sinatra. My current favourite language
Python – Various computational mathematics scripts and electromagnetic field lines visualisation project, as part of my degree
Unix – Used Linux in various forms since uni, mostly debian-based distros. Poor to middling bash scripter — I tend to go to ruby or python for any more than trivial scripts
Maths & Physics – In addition to my degree, have tutored A-level maths and physics in my spare time for a few years now
Miscellanious – LaTeX. Vim user (vimmer? vimist? vimian?), but haven't yet got up the courage to properly learn vimscript. Dabbled in Java to make an Android app I wanted, but wasn't a big fan
Of course, very happy to learn new things not in this list :)
2006 – 2010 University of Cambridge
BA MSci, Mathematics With Physics Took the three year Mathematics BA (in first year, also took the Physics part of the NatSci tripos), followed by the fourth year of the NatSci Physics MSci.
2011 – 2013 Queen Mary, University of London
Law LLB Sidetrack into a Law conversion course. Got excellent results (and was a quarter-finalist in the ESU national moot), but luckily realised that I wanted to be a programmer rather than a lawyer before going too far down that road.
2013 – 2014 Makers Academy
