I am an IT manager with over 25 years’ experience of providing exemplary support. I am responsible for the reliable and secure running of the business systems. In addition to server and networking, I have knowledge of manufacturing, accounts/payroll, retail, CCTV systems. In my previous position I managed numerous server installations and network infrastructure refreshes. My largest project to date has been to replace an ERP/MRP and retail systems which involved evaluation, potential solutions, commissioning, training and support of the selected solution.

I am married and we have one son called Harrison. I like to keep busy, so I have a number of hobbies and activities, in addition to the DIY that my wife tasks me with. Most of my hobbies have a link to do with my passion for electronics. I have kept Koi for as long as I can remember, currently I have 17 koi and a sturgeon called Peter in a pond with a window. The pond’s filter system is controlled by an Arduino micro controller. I enjoy tinkering with cars, our cars have upgraded lighting and HiFi. I am in the process of building a model railway which will feature electronic control. I also enjoy going to the gym.
