Entrepreneur, IT consultant, and Foodie in Brighton, United Kingdom
I was born in Auckland, New Zealand and have lived in the UK since 1997.
Professionally, I have worked for many years in the Telecoms industry and have a broad and deep experience of BSS/OSS architecture & design, agile development and corporate IT governance. Companies I have worked in include Virgin Media, Orange, HP, WorldCom, Vodafone & BT. I now provide my knowledge and experience as an independent consultant.
Food has always been a passion and in 1999 I won the BBC Masterchef competition.
As a self confessed 'coffee geek' I founded TheCoffeeRoasters.co.uk and provide speciality coffee both online and though a personalised subscription service. With over a 100 different coffees from a collection of UK artisan roasters, there is always a huge variety to explore!
Cycling is a great love and I recently restored my 1960's Legnano road bike, that I raced as a teenager.
Holidays are often spent travelling, either back to NZ or to my apartment in the beautiful region of Lunigiana in northern Italy.
