About Me

With over 10 years in the IT industry and an early adopter of technology, I am a self-motivated, personable and experienced sales, technical and security professional.


For me, IT is more than just a job or hobby. I believe technology is an enabler and I enjoy solving everyday issues and bespoke problems with unique outside of the box thinking. I thrive on making the impossible possible and provide a professional and measured approach to my work, often thinking ahead and pre-empting pitfalls whilst thinking about process, availability and security.


Having undertaken a variety of roles throughout the years, I can understand complex customer environments and provide a measured and well thought out solution to all aspects of the infrastructure and IT lifecycle. I am able to communicate with all levels, from the non-technical to developers, sales and C-Level executives on all aspects of a project or issue.
