Lewis is an accomplished software engineer and devops guy.

With a masters in information systems from Carnegie Mellon University, he has a broad background of experience in full stack web development, cloud infrastructure and devops.

Lewis currently runs a Social Enterprise, Vessels Tech, which focuses on using technology to improve the situations of those in under-served markets. He’s especially interested in how the IOTA Data marketplace can be used to build a market for open data, which can be used to effectively improve yields for smallholder famers and improve climate resiliency.

With IOTA, Lewis has worked with Andreas Osowski on a CLI Wallet in Rust, and a prototype application demonstrating how AWS Lambda can be used to offload PoW - improving scalability of full nodes. He’s also working on getting IOTA running on embedded devices, and sharing his development adventures with the world.

In his spare time, Lewis enjoys travelling, riding his bicycle to cafés and avoiding cats.
