A bit about me

Hi, I'm ! I'm from sunny Scotland and currently live in Tokyo. In recent years I've spoken at a number of conferences and user groups throughout the world. Here you'll find a collection of the talks I've given and some more information about them.

In addition to PCI DSS Compliance, I've also spoken about PDF documents, localisation, languauge learning and even Klingon. I'm a very active member of the Ruby community and I used to organise an annual tech conference in Scotland.
