Biography

I have been working in the IT industry since 1994. In that time I have been involved in the IT industry areas of Project Management, Infrastructure Construction, Software Development and Network Management. Over this time I have made a consious effort to development a large array of soft skills that make me an excellent facilitator and supporter of project teams. I am focused on project management and working with and for highly motivated, self organised teams. I enjoy a highly challenging work environment and work well under pressure to achieve deadlines. I am self-motivated and energetic, learning quickly and easily, and seek out opportunities to develop skills and abilities to my full potential. I have an exceptional organisational capability, paying attention to detail and planning whilst keeping the overall picture in mind. I am able to work without supervision or as an integral part of a success orientated team.
