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 roles with Google as Customer Engineering Manager, and before that with IBM as Cloud Architect Leader, have allowed me to work with many of the key projects which are shaping the direction in which our industry is heading.

I’m proud to have worked for two incredibly innovative, industry-shaping companies.  However any opinions here are my own and not necessarily those of my present employer, Google.
