My career in IT has spanned 22 years, covering IT operations, Technical Support and Architecture roles which have all required subject matter expertise in IBM Power Systems, IBM i OS, and associated technologies.

I have significant experience in designing and implementing IBM i infrastructure solutions, in particular those which leverage heavy workload consolidation and virtualisation techniques such as VIOS-based networking and storage.

I have delivered numerous successful design and build contributions to complex internal and managed service projects working closely with other technology specialists to drive positive results across infrastructure landscapes in time bound and challenging projects.
