I'm a rocket scientist OMG! Well, I did spent quite a chunk of my life devoted to particle physics...

I've just started a new job doing all sorts of virtualisation and cloud computing stuff. In the past I've also been a Ruby developer and a quant.

Cool stuff

Just started a job building CloudFoundry related stuff, learning lots of interesting things and honing my unix and ruby-fu. Luckily I still find the time to do some Clojure in my spare time, sing in a community choir, and learn to play the pipe organ. I'm also getting into electronic music and synths.
