Diversity Manifesto

Founder of the Diversity Manifesto. The Diversity Manifesto is a rallying call to the Games Industry to advance diversity and inclusion within the workplace by working collectively. It's like the Agile Manifesto, but for humans.


One of the organisers of the Docker Meetup in Dublin. We host regular Meetups and are involved in building the Docker community in Ireland. We have hosted Bootcamps and training sessions at various companies around Dublin, including Workday, Gilt and Demonware.


Founder of the Jenkins Meetup in Dublin. As a recent Jenkins convert I'd like to build a community of engineers in Dublin to discuss Build Engineering best practices, Continuous Delivery and the tooling around this. We are planning to host our first Meetup in the next few months. Everyone is welcome.


My first taste of gaming was Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom on the Commodore 64. I've been hooked ever since. As a life long gamer it has always been a dream to work in the gaming industry. In 2012 I joined Demonware as a Build Engineer and had the privilege of working on titles such as Call of Duty, Destiny and Skylanders. In April 2018 I joined Riot Games as a System Engineer on the Core Infrastructure team. During my time at Riot I was part of the Diversity and Inclusion team based in Dublin. This was a hugely challenging role and I left Riot in August 2019. I'm currently working as a Principal Automation Engineer (Server) at DIGIT Gaming and loving every minute of it.
