Bio: 

I am a Drupal Developer and have been developing websites with Drupal since 2007. I am based in London, UK.

I am a contributor to Drupal core & contributed modules, and have mentored and trained apprentice Drupal developers. I have experience with upgrading Drupal websites between different core versions.

I founded and organise Drupal user groups in Surrey & West London. Last year I also helped to organise Drupal Camp London. The first contributions I made were by attending Drupal Developer Days 2014, which turned into getting addicted and attending regular code sprints where I contribute code and help new contributors to do so.

I regularly speak at Drupal meetups, camps, conferences and keep abreast of new technology at web development conferences such as Future of Web Design, Future of Web Apps & PHP UK.

I've given talks on topics such as Drupal Commerce, Responsive Drupal websites & Features re-configuration and strategy & Drupal case studies.
