Building high-performing customer-focused teams and products.



2018 — Present

I'm a senior engineering manager with Amazon Web Services where I lead a global team building products and services that automatically prevent and remediate problems on the world's most used network. We're always hiring so get in touch.

Paddy Power Betfair

2017 — 2018

Previously, I was a head of engineering for Paddy Power Betfair — one of the world’s leading sportsbooks — where I ran the Risk & Trading Technology group. We built the models and sports simulation tools that powered PPB’s trading and pricing engines. We also built sophisticated real-time risk management and automation tooling for sports traders.


2008 — 2016

Previously, I was an engineering director with GameStop International. My focus was on building and leading the team that delivers GameStop’s multi-channel capabilities: high-volume ecommerce applications, store-facing commerce capabilities, customer service and fulfillment systems, public and internal APIs, loyalty programmes, and mobile apps.


I'm a former President (2018–2022) of the Irish Powerlifting Federation (an IPF affiliate). I played rugby for a decade as a hooker and still threaten to return from time to time..


I live in Seattle with my wife, Rebecca, and our adorable doggo, Daisy. I miss Dublin deeply but I am falling in love with our new home.
