I am an information technology professional who has worked in the industry for over 15 years. I have specialised in SOE (Standard Operating Environment) design, deployment and management for Windows Server and Windows Client operating systems. I have a strong understanding of ConfigMgr site design, implementation and administration. I have advanced knowledge of application packaging, application virtualization, patch management, and scripting.

Over the last few years, I have broadened my technological skillset and embraced the DevOps movement. Moving infrastructure from the “good old days” into the brave new frontier has meant skilling up is necessary. Foreign concepts such as pipelines, declarative code, integration tests, etc, are now fully within my remit and vocabulary.

I am a firm believer that change is a good thing. I believe that just because a process or solution has been in place for a long time, it does not mean it is the best way to do it. I like to question why something is done a particular way, and investigate ways of improving or replacing. Collaboration between differing groups of people can deliver amazing solutions if we can get over personal preferences and think about the end goal. At the end of the day, I am here to ensure that the business can run as smoothly as possible.

I have learned a breadth of technologies and skills, focusing in the following areas:

  • Operating System Design & Deployment
  • System Center Configuration Manager design, implementation and administration
  • Advanced Scripting with Powershell
  • Software Update and Patch Management
  • Pipelines and Infrastructure as Code
  • Leadership and performance management
