I am an IT Consultant with over 28 years’ experience of delivering solutions and advice to clients across a wide range of industries.  The major part of my career has been spent as an independent consultant to large IT clients, specialising in creating solutions and managing storage hardware and software (covering SAN, NAS and backup); planning and implementing systems; designing architectures; implementing procedures and processes; writing software and scripts and providing advice and general consultancy.  The latter part of my career had branched out into working with vendors on developing marketing collateral and as an analyst looking at the IT industry as a whole.  In addition to consultancy work I write technical articles at a range of sites that currently and previously have included Techworld, IDG, Tech Target, IT ToolBox, Data Mation, Network Computing and my own site, Architecting IT.  I travel frequently around the globe, attending events and conferences, occasionally including as a guest speaker.
