I was born, raised and currently live in the South West of England with my wife and 2 young boys. I have a strong interest in anything IT related and have done so from a young age. Away from IT I enjoy following football, playing skittles in a local league team and of course spending as much time as I can with the family.
I am an experienced IT Delivery lead, Software Development Manager, Software Engineer, certified PRINCE2 Practitioner and graduate from the University of Exeter, The One Planet MBA.
