Nicholas Avenell



I'm a professional technology generalist based in Oxford, England.

Currently I'm working as a DevOps Lead for Pernod Ricard, managing platforms and process for their front facing websites (For brand such as Absolut, Jameson Whiskey, Beefeater Gin).

Previously I've done similar things for companies like Elsevier, Zappit, Skimlinks, Gyron & Skute; working on technology under contract for brands such as BMW, Sony, Wells & Young, Al Jazeera & Insite Energy.

In my spare time I am involved with organising both in-person and online events as part of Carcosa Dreams, as well as live action roleplaying events with Profound Decisions and other events companies.

What time that remains after all that is spent on hobbies such as cooking, running tabletop gaming sessions and other games activities, and attempting to be less overcommitted.

I enjoy long walks on the beach in theory, and my baked cheesecake is the stuff of legend.
