I am flexible, pragmatic, cost-conscious and aware of the importance of maintainability for the small to medium enterprise (SME). I can work part time or full time, regularly or occasionally. I frequently provide specialist services to other consultancies, providing a joint service to clients.


Looking for new part-time opportunities for organisations looking to solve specialist problems.


Throw me in a swamp and I will find a way to swim. With a broad range of skills acquired over 40 years and an interest in making the best of new ideas and technologies, I can find workable solutions to most problems.
