Prior to blogs or GitHub existing, people used to just upload the things that they'd been working on to their personal websites. This site was created with the same aim, as I was working in IT and made some tools that may be of use to other people. The name comes from the sample text in a logo design template in the GIMP.
I just tend to use this site as a place to put bits and pieces that I've worked on and that hopefully can help somebody else. So if you find something useful to you, I'm glad to have helped.
Over the years, I have worked in a range of fields including IT, genomics, and what could be called applied pharmacology - building a successful startup medtech company with a software based medical device (DoseMe). Currently, I am completing a medical degree, participating in research, and assisting startup companies around Brisbane (and starting one beer-related company of my own).
After completing a PhD in Bioinformatics (see my research interests), I founded DoseMe, which develops precision dosing and dose individualisation software for doctors, pharmacists and other healthcare providers. DoseMeRx provides model informed precision dosing for 40+ medications such as vancomycin to a large number of hospitals predominantly across the United States, but also in several European countries, and Australia.
In January 2019 DoseMe was acquired by Tabula Rasa Healthcare (NASDAQ: TRHC), adding a new head office in Moorestown NJ, with existing staff remaining present in Texas, and maintaining (and growing) our Australian office in Brisbane. DoseMeRx can be trialed for free online at https://doseme-rx.com/, but DoseMe is also available at no charge for universities and researchers through The Dosing Institute. I resigned at the end of the 2019 year, confident that DoseMe is in safe hands for its continued growth and expansion.
Over the years, I have developed a range of tools here that I either modified or wrote to help with that work, and also some other related information. Some of the more interesting IT projects that I have been involved in are porting a programming language (compiler/interpreter/virtual machine) (written in C/C++) from Unix to Windows, leading a development team, and architectural systems-related work in the ISP area.
On a lighter note, I enjoy flying model aeroplanes, and playing bass guitar and piano. If you wish to get in touch, feel free to email me.
