About me

I am skilled at working with people through a career that involved working with artists, consulting with customers on large theatrical productions including lighting & sound design and helping with online and in person sales for our family’s small business.

I enjoy teaching others and have lectured on my specialist subjects throughout my career on a part-time basis. In 2019 I obtained a certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language with Business English as speciality.

I have always been interested and involved in technology, providing all functions from home office and networking support to running our family business e-commerce site. I am continuously looking at new technologies, especially in the Cloud, making sure that I understand them, while also honing my Linux and Python skills.

My belief is that while the customer may not always be right, it is always my responsibility to guide and provide the best solution to my customers, gaining and keeping their trust.

When it comes to troubleshooting, I prefer to keep things simple, breaking problems down by gathering facts first and then stepping through the logical parts to eliminate obvious issues first.

I believe that I will be asset to any organisation.

In my limited spare time I love to read anything from biographies to science fiction and, of course, playing with our two dogs and cat.
