BIOGRAPHY

Personal Profile

I find it funny how calling people ‘Geeks’ used to be a derogatory term. I am a Geek and like that description, to me it says I love technology and I do. In fact, I am one of the lucky people to have worked all my working life with what I love. I use technology all day and go home and tinker with technology all evening in my personal time.
I began my career back in the late 80s / early 90s producing Computer generated art as a hobby. Back then, the internet didn’t even exist (something the youth of today would find hard to understand). I sold several of my art pieces to HMV, Athena and they were exported globally some pieces selling in excess of a million posters. When problems occurred, the aid for computer related issues back then was scarce, just books really, so I learned how to fix issues with computers myself with no idea it would end up as my career.
In 1998 I had the opportunity to put that knowledge to work. A friend and I ventured out, with the help of the Princess Trust, and opened a small Internet Café and PC shop. This grew up to and over the millennium mark to 2004 whereby, small shops became unprofitable due to the launch of such mammoths as PC world, eBay and eventually Amazon.
I decided to turn my hand to I.T for the corporate world and, again launched a new company in 2008 providing managed services to Businesses. Since, I have been heavily involved in solution providing, support of the business network and many evolving technologies such as Microsoft 365 and VoIP communication provision for large companies of many different sectors.
I have strong ethics, I hate commission driven I.T Sales people (they just burn peoples fingers with poor services and make good peoples jobs harder) and get a buzz out of helping people and companies improve what they have.
