I am a software engineer with many years experience producing software and systems in a variety of industries. My experience covers ETL pipelines, PKI & applied cryptography, network security, API & micro-service design, large scale hosting and general consulting.

As an Australian I am a native English speaker but I am also fluent in Thai. I am available for full-time, part-time, and contract positions with remote work being preferred.

All my publicly available source code is available at https://src.userspace.com.au and mirrored to GitHub and GitLab.
