Work

I’m an software engineer at Red River Software though also do a bit of DevOps work when needed. As a member of the Technical Steering team, I have the opportunity to spike out new and interesting technologies on a regular basis, as well evaluate existing processes looking for issues and potential improvements. I also help head up part of our community outreach in the form of the LunchBots challenge, where we invite and mentor local schools to create robots using kits we’ve provided.

Robots

During college, I competed in the Students Robotics competition and now that I’ve left I volunteer as a Blueshirt. Student Robotics is a national competition where teams have to create and program an autonomous robot that will compete against other robot in a year specific, non-contact, game.

I am also a volunteer for the SourceBots organisation which organises and run a Summer School for college age students to build a robot that can compete in a game within 5 days.

Scouts

I’ve been in the Scouting movement for the last 14 years and in April 2017 I became the Cub Scout Leader at my local pack.
