15+ years managing, implementing, supporting and troubleshooting technical solutions & teams.

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO NEXT?
Right now, I'm looking for contract work in or near London delivering a technical project or leading a technology service or team. I know I already said that.. but just to be clear :)
Building solutions that are super focussed on addressing one specific thing really really well. This is almost always better than trying to fix everything in one hit.
As for industries, I'd love to put my skills to use to impact health & patient care, the environment & waste management, mass transit or almost anything at all involving cars 🚗 and engines 💨.
I have an honours degree in Computer Networks, three A Levels (Chemistry, Physics, Industrial Design) and lots of vendor acronyms - mostly expired - from 20 years of being involved with technology, networks and clever people.
The last qualification I took was a CCIE written because some of my engineers suggested I was losing it, (I was) nowadays I only occasionally delight and surprise my colleagues by sending them the odd PR.
If you're looking for rants, blogs, travelogs and blow-by-blow accounts of intoxicated weekends, they are all gone. I only occasionally miss them ❤️.
