After working for over a decade as an Accountant; I realised that it wasn’t for me. I just didn’t really like most of the day-to-day aspects of accounting but loved the data-crunching and systems work that I occasionally got to perform. I felt a yearning to be more creative… and, well, creative accounting isn’t really encouraged for a whole range of reasons! ;-)
Risen Solutions was born.
Risen solutions is a boutique software development house through which I have worked with some amazing clients, as well as built some interesting personal projects. From designing, building and hosting a corporate risk management system; to developing a user application for changing one’s mindset; the journey has been fun, fascinating and eye-opening. Each new project, which are listed in the portfolio below, provided me with new problem-solving opportunities and enhanced my ability to pick up new skills/frameworks quickly.
Now Risen Solutions specialises in providing custom business solutions and data-broking applications to streamline business processes; increase accuracy, effectiveness and efficiency; and allow you to focus on making a real difference in your business and not be bogged down in the mundane tedium of replicatable tasks. Automate the boring stuff with Risen Solutions!

Like any design professional, software developers are only as good as their last project. Admittedly my work generally possesses much less 'color' than some other designers; but a whole lot more data wrangling. Most of my work has been in private code bases, but you can see a summary of my recent projects below. You can also view my Gitlab Profile here for a more detailed look at what I can share.
Want me to automate something boring for you? Chances are that I’ll find it interesting… why not drop me a line to find out.
