Profile

I have over twenty years' experience as an executive, software engineer and technical specialist.

I built and ran a very profitable software company in the web development space, delivering great products and consulting for several major clients including Adobe Systems.

I have worked in diverse business areas and have a broad set of skills; from managing teams, through front and back-end development, product marketing and pre and post-sales technical support.

For the last few years I've specialised in mobile development, but have a proven track record in desktop and web development. I have specialised knowledge of encryption and reverse-engineering, as well as a great deal of user interface design and implementation experience. I have extensive experience with MDM platforms for device management and app delivery.

I have worked with a wide range of technologies and platforms. I'm proficient in Swift, Objective-C, JavaScript, C, various scripting languages and have exposure to many more. I have significant experience with the full HTML5 stack; I've been building sites since the early days of the web and have built two cross-platform JavaScript libraries from scratch.

More recently, I have built a strong and growing team at ResApp Health, where we are using DSP and machine learning technology on smartphones to diagnose respiratory disease.

I am responsible for building and running the technology team at ResApp, which includes everything from R&D, algorithm development, app development as well as server-side technologies, cybersecurity infrastructure and the technical side of regulatory compliance.

At ResApp I've built software for ResApp's large clinical studies both in Australia and in multiple hospitals in the US. I have worked extensively with the clinical teams during planning, data collection and analysis and with the regulatory team to get our products cleared as medical devices under the European (CE) regulations, Australian TGA, US FDA and other.

I have managed the ResApp team to deliver the ResAppDx and SleepCheck mobile medical device apps through the regulatory process and overseen release to the Apple App Store and Google Play store.

I have also played a critical role in the specification and implementation of the Quality Management System at ResApp, which has been certified as ISO 13485 and IEC 623604 compliant by the British Standards Institution (BSI). I'm currently overseeing the implementation of cybersecurity procedures at ResApp to ISO 27001 standard.

I have presented at various local user groups and have contributed chapters to several technical books.

I have dual UK/Australian citizenship.
