Previously, I have also held AWS Certified DevOps Engineer - Professional (DOP) and AWS Certified Developer - Associate (DVA) certifications.


  • Painting miniature men for the tabletop game Warhammer 40,000.
  • Playing Dungeons and Dragons once a week, currently with a wood elf monk who punches a whole lot of things… and runs up walls.
  • Occasionally I will play squash although I am not any good at it.
  • Film. I love movies and going to the cinema.
