During my teenage years I was a bit of a PlayStation gamer but never really had an interest in the PC or server side of technology. I started working in a call centre and quickly found talking to customers, using computers and troubleshooting problems came naturally, I also found it pretty interesting. I then managed to fall into my first IT role providing end user support for an outsourced IT provider who looked after Devon and Cornwall Police. From there my experience and drive to learn more about Microsoft Technologies and Networking grew. I then had employment stints at a few large Public Sector organisations and eventually moved into consultancy which I have been doing for nearly 6 years.

I joined IT Champion at the beginning of January so for me the “new year, fresh start” saying could not be more true. I have joined to help drive the projects and technical delivery side of the business using my experience gained in my previous roles working for Public Sector and providing consultancy for all different sizes of businesses. So far I have enjoyed working with such an enthusiastic group of people for a fast growing company in my home town of Exeter.

On a personal level my home life is taken up looking after three energetic sons and a demanding wife 🙂 I do get some time to myself which is spent doing some form of physical exercise for enjoyment. Last year I completed three half marathons (Plymouth, Exeter and Cardiff) and also cycled from Calais to Paris with some friends over two days.
