Drag chains installed. Not perfect but it’ll do. Now I have to extend some wires.

It’s hard to find the perfect headline, but sometimes one just scrolls on by.

Today was my last day at Narrative and true to form I was deploying to production right up to the last minute. What a great team. I’ll miss them. Also, you can have my old job if you want. You’d be great. I believe in you. narrative.so/careers/lead-serv

After six months of cramming I finally got the project from hell over the line - the day before my last day.

my lastest project has been an which has taken me several weeks to build. I particularly enjoyed building the electronics box, which allowed me to do some , and some . The best part is that it's almost 100% made out of stuff I had lying around. Even the table is made out of reclaimed wood. Total spend maybe NZ$250.

So here’s slightly more of an - I’m a software engineer by trade, which is good because I love making things, both physical and virtual. Some of the things I’m into: , , , , , , and . These days I prefer to code in , but have experience in , , , , and .
