IT Technician / Network Administrator Trainee /  Website Developer


Working with other ICT staff in-school, I've gained first-hand experience in systems including (but not limited to) Microsoft Server 2012 (Active Directory, Hyper-V, NAS, cluster failover configuration, hardware monitoring and UPS implementation), SmoothWall, physical networking, teaching, communications, project management, Office 365 for Education, data management, and Ericom.

Working at a school has given me great insight into how varied the Education sector can be. Each day always presents a new challenge - Something I strive to push myself for. Without these challenges, my knowledge of academy IT wouldn't be as vast and diverse as it is today.
