About Me

I love working with new cloud and mobile technologies and trying to push them further or trying new unique approaches to solve (often open source) issues with them. I also enjoy learning languages, working on my startup and volunteering with St John Ambulance as a First Aider and Unit Manager in my spare time.

Work Experience

Chief Technology Officer - Urban Exp Ltd

In April 2019 I was asked to join a startup creating a mobile application to help people to explore their city. As CTO, my role at the company consists primarily of programming the mobile application (iOS and Android), as well as designing the entire cloud infrastructure, and designing the overall system architecture. Additionally, my role also extends to managing other developers.

Founder - Reid Technologies Ltd

I founded my first company in 2016 to service a San Francisco based startup who requested a bespoke encryption solution to facilitate secure communications with their remote systems. Since then, the company has pivoted its focus to big data footfall analytics and secure device-to-device mobile communication.

Voluntary Work

I volunteer with St John Ambulance (SJA) as a First Aider and Unit Manager. The unit is part of the First Aid society at my university for which I am also on committee.

As part of my roles, I teach first aid to people at the society and occasionally I'm asked to teach first aid outside of the university but my primary role as a First Aider is to administer first aid at events or even when I'm off duty.

The GoodSAM (Smartphone Activated Medics) app alerts trained first aiders or health care professionals to cardic arrests in their immediate vincinity.
