A bit about me

I'm a recent computer science graduate from the University of Cambridge based in London, United Kingdom. I currently run two companies: LicensePal, a software license distribution company, which I founded over six years ago, and more recently, ArcticDesk, a support help desk application, which I founded last summer. I have been designing websites for almost 10 years, and consider myself to be an expert in HTML and CSS. A research paper that I co-wrote, titled "Breaking for Commercials: Characterizing Mobile Advertising", based on my final year dissertation, was published in the Internet Measurement Conference (IMC) in November 2012.

Outside of work, I consider myself to be a passionate sports fan and like playing and watching several sports. I enjoy travelling and have visited many countries around the world, most recently Australia. I also have a strong interest in technology and gadgets, and keep up to date with the latest tech news.
