Career Profile

I am an Identity Management Architect, with over 25 years industry experience; working for large clients such as RBS, Barclays Bank, UBS, Aviva, and both the Ministry of Defence and the Ministry of Justice.

Although I am an experienced Technical Architect and qualified Project Manager, I now focus on designing and delivering complex solutions in the Identity Management and Access Provisioning technology space; drawing from my previous experiences working on client, server and datacentre design, implementation, and ongoing service management.

I have a long track record of delivering successful projects into multifaceted environments, and I actively seek roles that can bring benefit and change to the client organisation.

Having previously managed large teams, both direct and virtual, I am skilled in resource management and I am an effective and dynamic communicator. I am well versed in bridging the gaps between the technical solutions and the business requirements.

I am also currently Security Cleared to SC Level.

I am a Chartered Member of the British Computer Society and I live in Kent with my partner and daughter.
