Although by no means a Superhero (although it would be fun to be Wayne/Batman for a day or two) I live two lives and they are quite separate.
Professionally, I am a Technology Leader with more than 20 years of experience in building and operating complex, Enterprise-Scale systems in a number of varied industry and Government sectors. Over the last 7 years, I have launched a number of technology companies providing consultancy, software and Cloud services and as a result, I now sit on the board of a number of mid-tier organisations in an advisory capacity. Day-to-day I am focused on providing consultancy around Microsoft technologies to partners and customers that are looking to utilize Microsoft technologies in innovative ways at Cloud-Scale through two of my ventures SentiServe and extaCloud.
Fortunate to be a frequent speaker at conferences, in the community and at vendor events, I am an active member of the Microsoft community in Europe, Africa and the Americas.
Personally, I’m a failure as a musician but like to think I am having some success as a father, husband and cook. Oh, and people tell me I’m funny from time-to-time, so I’ll take it.
My two children (Kyle, 4 and Allana 1) changed everything for me, giving me the realization that some things are just more important than others, right? Everything else just kind fits around these two. I’m not sure how that works, but I know that the missus is a big part of it – she’s great.
