About Me

I am a contract IT Consultant with nearly 30 years’ experience. I work with IBM AIX on POWER hardware and PowerVS in IBM Cloud, Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Amazon Web Services Linux, performing a mixture of design, installation, configuration and administration roles. I also have extensive experience with storage management, backup and clustering solutions.

Away from work I am a keen scuba diver. I am a PADI certified Master Scuba Diver. I enjoy diving in the warm waters of the Red Sea (or Indonesia or The Maldives!). However, I’m not adverse to donning a dry suit and diving the cold, dark places in the UK like Vobster Quay or Stoney Cove.

I support Northampton Saints who play in the English Gallagher Premiership. I am a season ticket holder at Franklins Gardens and although we’ve had a couple of barren years, we have a young squad who are beginning to show their talent. There is a good collection of internationals in the team, not just England but Wales, Scotland and Fiji too.
