About Me. I’m more than just a number.
Firstly – thanks for visiting and taking the time to take a look around.
Although by no means a Superhero – although that would be fun for a day or two – I live two lives and they are quite separate.
My professional life involves travel, work, travel, work, travel and work. That’s about it. I enjoy what I do, and I get to work with some of the best people in the world.
I was a warfighter in the first phase of my career, I loved it. It wasn’t meant to be for the long term, but I regret not a second and look back with pride, especially when I think about the opportunities afforded to me as a result.
These days I am in defence, space, and aviation technology. I work for Fujitsu in the UK, joining the org as an FTE in 2021 after an extended period of running my own businesses and consulting on the side as my hustle. Over the last decade or so I’ve worked with the UK MOD, SpaceX, NASA, Boeing, Airbus, General Dynamics, the US DOD, and more – it’s been eventful and nourishing.
I’m fortunate enough to be a frequent speaker at conferences, in the community and at vendor events, I am an active member in a number of communities in Europe, Africa, and the Americas and have been known to eat a steak or two on my travels.
Personally? I’m a failure as a musician but like to think I am having some success as a father, cook, and amateur construction engineer.
People tell me I’m funny from time to time, I will take it. That said, my sense of humour is not for the faint-hearted. I will not hold back if it makes me laugh so hold on to your hats if I am on a roll.
My two children (Kyle and Allana) changed everything for me, giving me the realization that some things are just more important than others, right? Everything else just kind of fits around these two. I’m not sure how that works, but it mostly does.
Professionally? I am a Technology Leader with more than 20 years of experience operating at Enterprise scale.
Over the last decade, I have launched a number of tech companies providing software & services and currently sit on the board of a number of businesses in both operational and advisory capacities.
To keep my feet wet, I continue provide interim consultancy around Microsoft technologies to partners and customers that are looking to utilize Microsoft technologies in innovative ways and at cloud scale.
