Born and raised in Shrewsbury, Shropshire, I’ve spent my career in the IT/Web industry. At school I took a keen interest in computers & the internet and it was here I started my first blog. Over two decades later the website is still going strong.
In 2003 I set up a web hosting company whilst at University – Switchweb. I graduated in 2006 from Coventry University with a first class honours degree in Computer Science.
I joined Information Solutions Ltd in the summer 2006 and worked up the ranks to a director. The company has won many awards and delivers IT support services to a range of businesses and non-profit organisations.
I also set up and run a successful web agency, The Web Orchard, we’ve built a reputation for developing complex web applications for organisations around the world.
My side projects include Love Shrewsbury and Iraq Business News. The latter has received over 10 million page views and its newsletter has been read over 1.7million times since we took over the site in 2014.
I’ve been involved with ShropGeek for a number of years and have helped organise the three (R)Evolution conferences as well as numerous smaller events.
In 2010 I published my first book, Travel Photography showcasing some of my photography from around the world.
Day to day I spend most of my time coordinating projects from our office in the centre of Shrewsbury.
My projects/companies include:
