My technical expertise is within cloud-based enterprise software platforms, using Cloud Services such as Amazon AWS, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure, Data and Business Intelligence platforms based on SQL Server, NoSQL, Data Warehousing and Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and machine learning models as well as Enterprise Integration platforms.

I provide the following service offerings:

  • Architecture Planning and Design
  • Deployment and Planning Services
  • DevOps Planning, Design and Execution
  • Health and Risk Assessments
  • Quality Assurance for Software Platforms
  • Technical Training and Knowledge Ramp-up

I live in the historical countryside town of Hitchin in south-east England, with my wife Rachel, my son Matthew and our two cats. We spend summers in our holiday home on the west coast of Sweden.

I am passionate about beer brewing, playing music and cooking. I enjoy the outdoors, especially yacht sailing and hiking. I love spending evenings with friends, at an open mic event or socializing down the local pub.
