Hi, thanks for visiting my blog. I normally write about technical implementations of major change programmes. I am in the relatively unique position of having worked on 5G implementations, Huawei vendor selections and Covid-19 research.
I’m currently the Chief IT Architect and Head of Software Engineering at the Francis Crick Institute (amazing science in an amazing location). I am an advisor to MEC start-up ori.co (doing some really interesting stuff at the moment). Previously I was the Chief IT architect and 5G lead at UK mobile operator EE (I avoid saying BT). Currently I am busy with Covid-19 relating testing and research processes. I’m also regular conference speaker (a lot of stuff for TMForum) and consultant.
I started my career as a Java developer with BEA Systems working on the Weblogic Application Server product line. I have worked in Finance (Barclays Capital & Bupa Insurance) or Telcos including: Telefonica, o2 UK, T-Mobile UK, UPC NL, UPC Austria, UPC Global, QWest USA, Vodafone Group, Vodafone UK, Vodacom South Africa, Vodafone India, BT & EE.
If you want to know more, just want to chat or get some advice, or are even looking to hire an enterprise architect for your project then please reach out.
