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

I am currently a Software Engineering Lead 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 nearly 20 years of experience in tech and digital 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 to tackle any project. It enables me and my teams to deliver the right and proper solution for whatever problems a project may throw up.
