About

Hello! I'm Liam, a Software Engineer with more than 5 years experience based in Edinburgh, UK. I build applications that live on the internet, whether that is web, desktop, mobile and anything in between.

Currently I work for PayPal as a Software Engineer, specialising in building micro services in Go and user interfaces in Angular.

In my spare time I am a Moderator for the Treehouse online learning platform, moderating the community forums ensuring all questions are answered. As well as that I do software freelance work and software volunteer work for non-profit businesses.
