I am passionate about architecture, design, strategy, and planning, and the business outcomes that technology enables. I believe in quality, simplicity, and always striving to do it better. I believe change should be embraced, and that it is never too late to make a change for the better.

I have a keen interest in next generation network technologies, and particularly interested in software-defined networking (SDN), and network functions virtualisation (NFV), public cloud and IoT technologies.

I am developing the Architecture Vision of the company I am employed by, with a mission to build consensus for a consistent platform, enabling our customers to consume the Network-as-a-Service. I act as the voice of the customer, translating their business requirements into functional and non-functional architectural requirements for the development our SDN, SD-WAN and Hybrid Cloud services.

To complement the architecture development, I am also significantly involved in the development of our Professional Services function; defining the service catalogue, and technical capabilities. Specific areas of focus relate to a “Cloud Networking” capability, as well as advanced services including strategy and architecture.

I take solution and technical ownership of, and support for, multi-million GBP tender responses, and work with key customers to help develop their strategy.
