Hi there! I'm Chad, a software engineer based in Manchester, UK.

I've worked for companies like Stark, Made Tech and The Bot Platform.

Working with me

I like to bring calm to the chaos. Outages can be a learning experience and committing to less enables you to move faster.

You'll find I try to be a first responder when people ask for help, unless I'm protecting my time for deep work.

My code reviews are a blend of education and praise with blocking as an extremity.

Not everything needs to be high quality, but I strive to leave things better than I found them.


I like being outdoors, running with my local running club Kerb Runners or taking Henry, our 3 year old spaniel on a long walk. I love to relax by reading a good book, playing games or building Lego. My favourite shows tend to be anime, sci-fi or crime.
