What is an Offbeatmammal…?

I'm a media-focussed technical evangelist and full stack developer, with experience as an individual contributor and team leader, in both the Startup and Corporate world. I have worked for advertising and media firms, on record breaking television franchises, and for Fortune 100 Companies. I consult on high profile, large scale, commercially successful web and online video projects, and have over a decade of experience delivering highly performant websites and online video solutions, using a variety of server technologies and languages. I approach any project with a strong focus on delivering reliability and scalability - using either dedicated server infrastructure or cloud computing, coupled with appropriate content delivery and acceleration networks - to deliver great experience to your users on desktop and mobile browsers.

I've developed a couple of open source projects (jsErrLog and jsNoSpam). Please check them out, make use of them, or contribute if you can.

After many years of wondering if I had it in me, I wrote a book. Tuesday Tales: Falling, a young adult sci-fi novella, and a follow-up short story Tuesday Tales: Running Late. Both are available from Amazon. Now I just need to finish the next one...

I am active on StackOverflow, and I occasionally blog and post on Medium.
