Personal Information

I’ve spent my life in Bournemouth and the surrounding areas, enjoying an eclectic mixture of technological education, seaside frivolity, hard work and not so hard (or perhaps much harder) rocking out to whatever music makes its way down here.

My CV and work is an odd mix of highly technical jobs, research and understanding, interspersed with seemingly docile occupations of just talking to people or writing things.

Overall though, I consider none of my experience to be either demanding or easy, nor demanding or simple.

Where I feel I fit best is a position where I am able to assess problems and the people involved in them. assuage any difficulties in transitioning to new environments and generally provide a peaceful balance to work within.

I have the talents to spend several days coding or hours on a conference calls to investors if needed. Yet I could instantly switch off and 5 minutes later fix an old lady’s phone or teach your most difficult user over Skype how to remotely log in to his account and properly raise a ticket…
