About Meurig

Founder of Local Leaves Limited and avid inventor and developer of IoT products and prototypes. I'm currently working full time leading a team of software developers in a finance company, but I'm keen to explore opportunities. I'd be particularly interested in helping someone prototype initial ideas.
