SAP BASIS since 1999. Full end-to-end stack, SAP Portal certified. Designed, implemented, troubleshooted and supported a number of solutions, across several different environments, for many globally recognised companies.
Have created several personal and commercial websites. I enjoy working on the UI, UX and all the things you don't see behind the scenes (making sites that perform well, have good SEO and SEM, A/B testing, e-mail strategy, etc).
I have always loved technology. I was brought up on computer games from the Atari 2600, ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64, Commodore Amiga 500, multiple consoles and homemade computers. From gaming I learned how to get drivers working in MS DOS, how to tune memory in MS DOS and Windows, how to get hardware to work with Windows ('Plug and Play' hadn't been conceived back then). Then I started building PC’s. making websites, programming, managing the network and PC's for my dad's company.
From my 'home-baked' start, 6 months into my 3rd year of University (which was a work placement at the SAP Centre at Barclays Bank) I was offered a job. So after completing my 4th year of University, I continued at Barclays Bank for a total of over 6 years. Then I furthered my SAP career at Deloitte for 8 years and Capgemini from 2005 to present.
As well as being obsessed with technology, I have always liked to participate in sport - target shooting for 26 years, a member of 3 sponsored Paintball teams, 16 x 6 hour Adventure Races, 2 x Sprint Distance Triathlons, 4 x Half Marathons (fastest time 1:39), plus lots of rock climbing, snowboarding, mountain biking and other sports.
Then there's cars, photography, family - and of course bacon!
