About Me

I’m a freelance technical consultant located near London in the U.K. with over 15 years commercial experience providing the right solutions to clients of all sizes.

 

At the age of three I was showing my parents how to use their top-loader VCR. At the age of six I was spending my lunch hours at junior school porting BASIC programs from library books to the BBC Micro computer. At the age of 10 I was writing 680×0 assembler on the Commodore Amiga. I was relentless in my technical pursuits. My parents thought I was weird. My other interests include hobbyist electronics, music production, high quality Hi-Fi (home & in-car) and tropical fish-keeping.

Since 1997 I have been primarily engaged with the I.T. sector, naturally progressing through the various disciplines from technical support, field engineering, systems administration, systems engineering and since 2002, solutions & infrastructure architecture.

 

Clients such as Microsoft, Ford Motor Company and the Royal Bank of Scotland value my wide breadth of knowledge and experience and continue to rely on me daily to design & deploy technical solutions in a wide variety of dynamic & complex  environments across the globe.

 

I’m happy to consult for both small business and large enterprises, so don’t let the big names scare you off. :)

Stuart was a technically adept and competent engineer when working for me at MSN. With his depth of knowledge across multiple diverse environments, Stuart was an excellent engineer to have have in your team when designing and supporting systems, but especially when problem solving tricky and obscure issues in the environments we supported. I enjoyed working with Stuart in a challenging department.
