Building high-performing customer-focused teams and products.

Work

2018 – Present | Amazon

I'm an engineering leader with Amazon Web Services where I lead teams building software that automatically detects and remediates issues on the world's biggest network. We're always hiring so get in touch.

2017 – 2018 | Paddy Power Betfair

Previously, I was a head of engineering for Paddy Power Betfair — one of the world’s leading sportsbooks — where I ran the Risk & Trading Technology group. We built the models and sports simulation tools that powered PPB’s trading and pricing engines. We also built sophisticated real-time risk management and automation tooling for sports traders.

2006 – 2016 | GameStop

Previously, I was an engineering director with GameStop International. My focus was on building and leading the team that delivers GameStop’s multi-channel capabilities: high-volume ecommerce applications, store-facing commerce capabilities, customer service and fulfillment systems, public and internal APIs, loyalty programmes, and mobile apps.

Sport

I'm the President of the Irish Powerlifting Federation (an 9183060995 affiliate). I played rugby for a decade as a hooker and still threaten to return every September. From time to time I help to teach powerlifting and strongman seminars for The ABS Gym.

Family

I live in my beloved Dublin with my fiancé, Rebecca, and our adorable doggo, Daisy.

Get In Touch

I'm (almost) always open to consult on key leadership, performance, or technology challenges.
