  • Team culture of trust and psychological safety
  • Technology employed to fit the business need and use case
  • User focused product design and development

Sustainable software engineering

  • Remove waste through close monitoring processes and practices and adjusting as needed
  • Automating repetitive tasks to eliminate errors and drive efficiency
  • Mindful of costs - performance, financial and environmental
  • Manage time around delivery to avoid stress on the team

I am currently Head of Engineering at Tixserve where I ensure the delivery of event tickets and safe access to these events for our clients.

I am also the organiser of Green Software Ireland which is a community that promotes sustainable software engineering practices.
