Bio

I've been working in the IT industry for over 20 years now, 8 years of this was spent as a software engineer working for BT where I supported Oracle based billing systems and developed solutions for BT Internet and BT Wireplay, (one of the first online gaming platforms).

In 2001 I moved into the IBM hardware arena, working for a business partner as a technical consultant designing and implementing IBM RS6000/Power, IBM storage and Oracle RDBMS solutions.

I joined Celerity in 2002 as a technical consultant. Since then, I have had a number of roles such as Technical Manager, Principal Consultant and my current role of Technical Architect for Data Protection & Storage. One of my primary focus areas is Celerity's Data Custodian offering. This is a portfolio of products that deliver data protection and storage management solutions both on/off premise and in the cloud.

In 2018 I was awarded IBM Champion status for IBM storage and SDS. This status was also renewed for 2019. The IBM Champions program recognises individuals who make extraordinary contributions to our IBM communities by advocating IBM solutions; sharing their knowledge and expertise; and helping nurture and grow independent communities.

2018 proved to be quite a busy year, as I also became Celerity's Data Protection Officer, responsible for GDPR compliance.
