Introductory Statement

  • I take the lead and act as the initial contact for the scoping, realisation and delivery of new projects and services. Working closely with the colleagues in IT Services and Professional Services in the identification and implementation of IT services in support of the University Strategic framework, integrating central services and introducing local services as needed.
  • I act as a trusted advisor to senior stakeholders so that they are able to understand and align with key technology related strategies and appreciate opportunities to exploit technology capabilities and innovation.
  • The business areas that I am partnering are External Relations and Planning.


I studied for my English Literature (BA) degree at Lancaster University and started work at the University of Birmingham in 1997 as an HTML editor (such jobs did briefly exist). I've had various roles at the University, most related to digital and web, first as a trainer, then developer and most rececently as Business Analyst. I joined the newly created IT Business Partnering team in May 2018.

Away from work I like being outside, in any weathers, ideally with my son. Also food, drink, rugby, family.

I can be found on Twitter and LinkedIn.
