Hi, my name is
Hey, I’m Dan. I live in Bristol, UK and I’m a Software Engineer at LexisNexis, a FTSE100 tech company that helps companies make better decisions by building applications powered by big data.
After deciding that I wanted to shift away from helping companies sell their tech enabled products and services and start building them myself, I graduating from a tech accelerator called DevelopMe_ in 2020 and requalified as a Software Engineer. I enjoy creating seamless end-to-end user experiences and applications that add value.
In my free time you can find me rock climbing around local crags here in the UK and trying to work towards a long-term goal of ticking off all the 4,000m peaks in the Alps.
Here are a few things that I've been working with recently:

I’m not currently looking for new opportunities but my inbox is always open.
Always happy to connect with new people. I'm particularly interested in speaking engagements, open-source collaborations and anything to do with tech careers, Laravel, Vue or React.
