What I Do

I love programming, have been doing it since I was 7, professionally since I was 15, and worked as a freelancer for over 10 years.

I mainly build complex web applications`with highly-scalable backends and sometimes HTML5 games.

When looking for a new opportunity, I always focus on working in areas where I can have a disproportionately high impact and provide a lot of value.

At this time, that area is centred around API backends for applications (either web or mobile) that are starting to have performance problems due to scale, or that need to prepare for larger amounts of traffic and the scaling issues that that will bring.

I'm also starting to get into Machine Learning, Clojure and Elixir, and would love to work on something that applies some of those.

If you're working on something like this, find out why you should hire me.

What my clients say about me

Julian Johnson Founder and CEO, Watu

"Daniel is a rare beast, understanding the big picture, technically and commercially, whilst being able to identify and define the minuscule detail that will make the wider vision achievable. Equally adept at designing features and writing complex code, he works at a pace unrivalled. Add to that a great sense of humour and deep knowledge on the weird and the wonderful, he was a great colleague and is now a good friend."
