Testing since 2011, Agile since 2014. Key interests in the industry include all the fundamentals of manual testing, earning the respect of the wider product team and “being that guy” who stands up for doing things properly, cleverly and in ever better ways.

Outside of testing I’m a graduate in English Literature and Philosophy, a systems theory enthusiast and a lover of music, travel (particularly Scandinavia, my second home – I blog about this at my other blog, Nordic Home), my kids and my wonderful fiancee.

Oh, and my name’s Stu. Nice to meet you.
