I am an experienced Solutions Architect with a design background in real-time distributed applications, data and service migrations and IP networks. Working directly with customers, I provided the critical link between technical and non-technical teams. I have a broad technical knowledge, and use this to deliver business vision through practical, creative, cost-effective solutions. Leadership experience guiding diverse teams of global engineers and a proven track record of solution design, project implementation and improving quality in project processes, procedures and documentation.
I am TOGAF certified and have 15+ years of hands-on experience of the full SDLC. Working alongside commercial and project delivery teams, I have provided technical ownership from pre-project initiation, during implementation, and through to transitioning to support/BAU, ensuring the successful implementation of the designed solution.
Technically hands-on, and proficient with virtualised and cloud-based solutions, I am an AWS Certified Solutions Architect and have worked on multiple complex digital transformation projects, designing and integrating custom applications and networks in a SOA environment. Experienced in many aspects of architecting distributed applications, including: functionality, performance, security, resilience, availability, scalability, management and auditing.
