"I love that the days fly by here - in a good way. I get to interact with the best people and engineers in the industry, and there’s always a challenge to overcome so it’s never boring."
I'm a born and bred Mancunian from the Longsight area. I started my career as a Trainee Draftsman at Kennedy and Donkin and finished my IETB apprenticeship in Control and Instrumentation (C&I). There I spent 27 years climbing the ladder all the way to Regional Project Systems Manager following my ONC and HNC accreditation in C&I.
My drive to work on more overseas projects led to me getting a Mathematics and Computing degree from the Open University. This qualification allowed me to move into different Engineering Industries where I worked on IT infrastructure projects like city design for government agencies, and developers across four continents.
One of the projects I'm genuinely proud of is my involvement in the building of Palm Jumeirah. While I didn’t move an inch of sand to create the human-made tree-shaped island in Dubai, I helped plan and manage the island’s IT infrastructure.
I wake early to beat the morning traffic into work on my motorbike. The majority of my job is keeping everyone happy, from customers to my team, ensuring each project is on time, to budget and specification.
I’m here to help with anything Atmos needs doing to make our employees and the company successful, whether it’s IT, HR, or just lending an ear.
I like to spend my free time with my teenage daughters. They try to hit the trails with their mountain bikes every weekend. I also teach both of them how to play squash.
I love that the days fly by here - in a good way. I get to interact with the best people and engineers in the industry, and there’s always a challenge to overcome so it’s never boring.
For my honeymoon, I flew on the supersonic Concorde from London to New York at Mach 2 speeds and then drove across the US in 17 days.
