Hi, I’m Max.
I’m a software developer in Cardiff, Wales. Originally from Birmingham where I grew up and worked for Podnosh after graduating with a 2:1 in Music Informatics from the University of Sussex. I now live in Cardiff and work as a senior developer for Substrakt. I also run GraphHost an IaaS for the neo4j graph database.
I’ve worked on projects big and small for everyone from non-profits, charities and enterprise-level applications. I love writing carefully crafted code with an emphasis on maintainability. I love to read and learn. Often about programming but often about wider issues too.
I spend a lot of time encouraging younger people in to programming. I’ve worked with Young Rewired State and many schools around Britain getting their students in to coding.

While working with Max at Podnosh it would be hard to find fault. He never failed to deliver and often exceeded expectations.
Max is a superstar.
Max was both tremendously engaged with his work and conscientious about the needs of his team mates – a lovely person to work with and positive role model in the team.
