More than just a checked shirt…

Thanks for checking me out. Want to know more? Drop me a line.

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.

My professional live 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 customers in the world.

I’m currently providing interim CTO services to a large defence organisation as well as consulting for NASA and I’m actively involved in a new venture – extaCloud.

I’m fortunate enough 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 and have been known to eat a steak or two when I’m doing so.

 

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, 5 and Allana 2)  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.

Professionally, I am a Technology Leader with more than 20 years of experience operating at Enterprise scale.

Over the last decade, I’ve launched several tech companies providing software & services and sit on the board of a number of organisations in an advisory capacity.

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 at cloud scale.
