Hello and welcome to my blog! I’m 33 years old and work in the UK/London. I work as a Technical Executive for IPsoft focusing mainly on VMware/Windows solutions, but also get involved in storage and networking.

I am a Highly self-motivated IT professional who is enthusiastic with the technology that surrounds me. I have a proven track record of overcoming complex technical problems and exceeding customers’ expectations. A good team player that will endeavour to provide guidance and assistance.

I love helping people and get a kick out of it, feel free to get in touch by using the contact form below.

My recent obsession has been collecting retro consoles such as the old Sega and Nintendo consoles, some of these can be found on my Instagram account.
