Summary

Professional  IT Support & Web Development Project Management

I first began fixing computers at the age of 12, and have never stopped. I have expanded into the technology sector as I progressed my education to Degree level, and have learnt a great deal of management and skills outside of computing, including sailing to Yachtmaster level and competing in the world famous Fastnet offshore race as a Watch Leader. I am equally happy working on my own or managing a team, and love travelling and working abroad and offshore.
