About

Hi

Working as an Flex/ActionScript Developer in Dublin, Ireland, mainly in the finance sector. Have developed a lot with both Flex Builder 3 and Flash Builder 4, and all of the SDKs from 3.0 – 4.6 for web-based, Desktop AIR, and Mobile applications. Server side is usually Java based, with data exchanged via AMF BlazeDS and HttpService. Focus on design and implementation of business logic and custom UI components to process, display and update large amounts of financial data.

Previously worked building Adobe Air and C# applications for visualizing and data-mining the the links between files and users across networks. I used WSDL WebServices (JSON) for communication between the server-side and front-end. Also spent a number of years working with Visual Studio Tools for Office (VSTO), C#, and VBA, developing MS Office and Excel add-ins

Apart from programming, I am dedicated gym goer, with the elliptical trainer being my gym weapon of choice, with a bit of swimming and indoor climbing thrown in to keep things interesting.
