About me

I’m a cloud architect who has worked in the IT industry for 25 years, much of that with IBM.  In that time I’ve worked with most of the UK’s major retailers and banks (and one or two outside the UK) and I’ve designed systems across a quarter of a century of technological advances – from POS terminals programmed in BASIC to the latest ‘close-to-being-sentient’ hypothesis engines.

My role with IBM as Cloud Architect Leader for the UK allows me to work with many of the key projects which are shaping the direction in which our industry is heading.

I’m proud to work for the company that put men on the moon, and invented the magnetic stripe, the barcode, random access memory, the hard disk, the floppy disk, relational databases, the scanning tunnelling microscope, the silicon-germanium chip and the personal computer.  However any opinions here are my own and not necessarily those of IBM.
