/ / Why I joined Synechron

To gain experience in the financial services domain

One of the primary reasons why I joined Synechron was the opportunity to gain experience in the financial services domain - an area where I had no experience whilst working with some of the most recognized innovators in the region. The interviewers were extremely personable and I knew I would be given the opportunity to be an integral part of highly visible and interesting projects.

/ / MY SKILLs, qualifications and experience

Degree in Theoretical Physics & Computer Science

I attended my university in Ireland, where I studied Theoretical Physics and Computer Science. Since then, I worked for various Fortune 100 companies and some small firms. I began my professional career following a track of network/security engineering but specialized in software development after taking on small development projects. My interest in this area helped me move to a full-time software development role.

/ / My personal interests

Traveling, martial arts, Soccer, Golf and Snooker

I am very much fond of learning about new technologies if I am not glued to a code editor while having a cup of coffee. I like to read technical articles and blogs. Outside of the tech world, I enjoy traveling, martial arts, Soccer, Golf and Snooker.
