This blog is my attempt to write semi-coherently about innovation,  technology, banking and a few other things that might actually be interesting. I work for a large bank in an innovation team researching new technology and trends. As of the 7th of December 2015 I will no longer be employed by the aforementioned bank after taking voluntary redundancy. Please help me find something new.

You can find out more about me by checking out my online activities in the following places

I also run a Twitter bot that collates Financial Technology News, @FintechBot. The news it collects is posted daily to my FintechBot blog. You can subscribe to its daily output via email as well. You can find out more about the how and why of it over here.


Speaking/Writing Opportunities

I am also keen to try my hand at a bit more public speaking as I like making PowerPoints and talking about stuff. I have talked at a few events. Links to slides and video where available below.

I also like writing (hence the blog) here is some of my writing and words elsewhere.

An article of mine recently published by Finextra. In praise of fantastic plastic

An interview with me by Stessa Cohen of Gartner on the UX Crunch blog

An interview with my Fintechbot on Irish Tech news


If you would like me to say some words at your event please get in touch.


Here is some sort of speaker bio. I am not very good at writing these things (1st person or 3rd person?) but this should give me something to cut and paste and edit to save me doing it from scratch.
