I am a technology leader with a history of hands-on experience building and running large scale (mostly Unix/Linux based) infrastructures as well as assembling and leading the operations teams responsible for managing these platforms. In more recent years I've helped to manage, scale and develop the software engineering and data science teams in a London fintech startup and am currently helping one of the worlds largest companies improve some of their IT processes.
I began my career in IT as a COBOL programmer on IBM mainframes. I was fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to move into systems operations a couple of years later; a move which sparked a passion that has stayed with me ever since. I have primarily focussed on Unix/Linux based large scale Internet facing infrastructures managed with high levels of automation. Over the years I've been fortunate enough to work in interesting businesses with extremely smart people driven by a passion for building and operating customer-centric technology solutions.
When not helping others through technology I enjoy spending time with my family & dogs (2 Pugs) and continuing to develop my photography skills (check out my photography page).
