About me


I am an experienced IT professional with technical background and skills gained in academic, professional, not-for-profit and corporate sectors. I have extensive experience in providing usable technical solutions to day-to-day business challenges. Although I have worked in management roles, I have always been passionate about development and kept hands on, taking part in design, development, and implementation of many database/web applications and CRM systems.

I am passionate about understanding how businesses make use of technology in general and I aspire to find solutions in keeping with the rapidly changing demands of modern ways of working. I am highly adaptable and responsive to advances in technology and changes in business requirements.
