Would you like to work together?

I'm interested in building things that make a positive difference to the world, especially if they're to do with music.

I can work in a variety of capacities - backend, frontend, or tech strategy.

I'm available for contracts from January 2015.

Let's talk.

You can also grab a copy of my CV, if you like.

Thanks for your time.
