WayBeyond is my consulting/contracting and personal ideas vehicle first setup in London in 1994 moving to Dublin in 1997. To keep things interesting I am now based mostly in Helsinki and work for Irish and UK clients with some small Finnish projects too.
I am enthusiastic technologist best described as an architect passionately involved at the code and implementation level. My specialties has been delivering real-time distributed systems and promoting best practice across the technology landscape.
It’s been wild ride these past years producing software solutions for a myriad of interesting clients (inlcuding some innovative, in their day, WBS products along the way) but the passion has not subsided one iota. Truth is, I am more invigorated than ever in this fast paced world of technological and business change. is truly an exciting time to be a technologist.
The original mission statement on this site mentioned "breaking down the technical and financial barriers between business and the Internet". I am happy to say that the old order of Business versus Technology is crumbling and now the accepted view is transparency, collaboration, and co-operation between all skillsets in a company to achieve a common goal.
I like to think I have played my part in that for the clients I have served. The plan now is to continue this journey by implementing technology advances to facilitate new, exciting and innovative business opportunities.
Feel free to contact me to discuss a requirement or opportunity. I will get back to your just as soon as I can and will arrange a suitable time to speak and/or visit you on-site if desired.
I'm rarely without an opinion and if I can steer you in the right direction I am happy to do so.
