Work history

About me

I am looking to assist with IT related projects, both infrastructure, network, and security. I have 20 years of experience in IT, including at Director level. I have a Masters Degree with Distinction in Cybersecurity, and I am currently studying for a PhD in the same. I work for a globally recognised open source software company and help support our product amongst most of the Fortune 500 and FTSE 100.

What am I looking for

My main interests are animal charities, as well as environmental causes. I am looking to assist with IT at both a functional and strategic level, particularly in the field of cybersecurity. I believe that my skills could really benefit a smaller organisation that does not have a dedicated IT department, as I have grown similar functions in a number of roles.
