About me

I am Greg Merriman. I designed and built this website.

Thanks for stopping by. Why not get in touch?

A bit more about me.

I am a web applications developer. I provide technical leadership for complex digital products. I sometimes dabble with iOS development. I like to push pixels occasionally. I'm a dad. I'm a husband. And I'm based in South Wales.

I am currently a Senior Software Engineer at LexisNexis Risk Solutions - a global data and analytics company helping organisations transform the way they make decisions about risks and opportunities by using data and advanced analytics.

A bit about my skills.

Racking up over 15 years of experience in the interwebs industry I have learnt a lot (and forgotten some). I have been lucky enough to work with some great people. Drawing on that experience I have developed a wide-ranging skillset that helps in tackling any project. It enables me to deliver the right and proper solution for whatever a project may throw up.
