As a day job, I am head of server-side development at iris, an experiential and marketing agency, running a team of developers.
Outside the office, I am also a trustee of UK Citizens' Online Democracy and a director of our mySociety project. I am also a director of the Open Rights Group, having been on their Advisory Council since the organisation's creation, and a technical advisor to Ada Lovelace Day.
I'm terrible at updating it, but my blog has a mini-biog page and links to my presence on all those social network platforms.
mySociety is a non-profit that makes "social good" software, primarily to help ease interaction between citizen & state. See our sites like TheyWorkForYou, WriteToThem and Mapumental for examples of our work. I am a non-exec director and trustee.
Open Rights Group
The Open Rights Group is a grassroots technology organisation which exists to protect civil liberties wherever they are threatened by the poor implementation and regulation of digital technology — our “digital rights”. I sit on the Advisory Council.
