I’m a fortysomething bloke living in the North West of England and working as a Cloud Security Architect at Check Point. I’m a lifelong Wigan Athletic fan and I’m married with two boys who usually just fight like rats in a sack.
I’m primarily a public cloud guy, working with Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services and Office 365. I also have 20 years of industry experience and complementary skills on the VMware suite of products, including vSphere, View and NSX. I’m a certification junkie and currently hold Azure MCSD, seven AWS certifications and all four VMware VCPs across the SDDC pillars. I also hold 5 Advanced level VMware certifications. Wander over to my LinkedIn page to find out more.
I have been awarded VMware vExpert status for my contributions to the community in both 2014, 2015 and 2016.
