A brief description of your career history:

A mixed bag, started out in hospitality (doesn’t everyone), aspired to greatness on the rugby field before running out of knees, transitioned into sales and then into recruitment.

I’ve been in technology recruitment for just over 14 years. In that time I have been lucky enough to work with some exceptional people and partner with brilliant clients.

What makes you ‘now’ in technology?

I have a passion for what I do and I’m genuinely interested in Technology and its ongoing evolution. As a result I take an active interest in the space and keep on top of current and upcoming developments.

What gets you out of bed on a Monday morning?

My son, usually at around 4 or 5am!!!

After that the thing that keeps me awake is the opportunity to work with exceptional people and to connect the brightest talent with the best companies.

What do you see as the next big game changer within the Digital Media and Technology industry?

The Digital and Technology sectors are evolving and converging at an incredible rate.

You call yourself a specialist. Why?

I call myself a specialist because I am.

I have specialised in IT since starting in recruitment 14 years ago.

What is your greatest achievement? 

Becoming a father and managing to survive on around 2 hours sleep a night for the last 2 years.

What is the best thing about your role?
