I.T.

Ever since I was 12 and broke my mum’s brand new PC (that she bought for £2000 back in 1994… I think it was an Olivetti 486?) I’ve enjoyed working with computers and IT in general. Today, I tend to specialise in Microsoft Server and Enterprise technologies. As well as Microsoft Azure and Office 365. I have since project managed and implemented several major core infrastructure improvements for previous companies I have worked for.
