I love doing open source work, so if you know of any projects that I could work on, get in touch with me. Equally, if you'd like me to speak at your event, please let me know via email or over Twitter.
This module tries to find out whether you're using a CLI tool with "--force" or "force", if you pass it the arguments list.

When I thought about extending my lightning talk on ServiceWorker, I really liked the idea of implementing it, so I wrote an application that renders London Underground and DLR stations on a map, and tells the user about any disruption on the network.
I created an API wrapper in Chicken Scheme for the Star Wars API. This API makes REST requests. I learned enough to try my hand at a Lisp based language, the day after learning anything about Scheme. I really enjoy the simplicity/complexity combination with Lisp, where nothing is more complex than (function arg1 arg2), but the power of passing functions into functions is brilliance.
HitFox Group - Front End Engineer - (Aug 2015 - Present)
I am involved in projects both related to the startups that HitFox and Finleap create, and internal tools to make our colleagues' work easier. I create React and Redux based applications, and contribute architecture guidance in relation to our microservice architecture.
WANdisco - Jr UX Engineer - (Sep 2014 - July 2015)
I am in charge of UX/UI design and implementation for our Access Control Plus application. I also take part in the design of new products, and new features in existing products. For me it's important that our products have the simplest user flow, without losing any functionality. I'm also involved in the implementation of those interfaces, often trusted to go from service through to the view. We use AngularJS, which is a really good fit for our workflow and requirements, and we use Grunt as our build tool.
WANdisco - Jr Test Engineer - (Jan 2014 - Aug 2014)
I performed regression testing across WANdisco's ALM product line, and often more targeted testing around diagnosing a specific issue. As such, I was expected to have a working knowledge of Git and SVN usage across a command line interface or via various GUI packages. I set up numerous Linux virtual machines to test our software on, and administered the tests either via the UI of the product, or across a remote shell session. I also created and maintained test cases via Gurock TestRail, and am familiar with the Jenkins Continuous Integration server. If a regression did occur, I used Jira to raise issues, and I was also confident using Atlassian's Confluence to find and write internal documentation.
