Hello! I am an Independent Integration Consultant specialising in Microsoft BizTalk Server and Windows Azure solutions. I work for a range of clients throughout the UK and Europe.

I started my career in 2001 in the EDI (UNIX/Linux) space before moving to the Microsoft Platform with the release of BizTalk Server 2004. My main focus is business-to-business messaging, with an increasing element of cloud-based solutions. I am also a technical expert in high-availability and clustering for the BizTalk platform.

In my spare time, I'm a keen pilot and try to keep true to my roots by working with Linux; I am a massive fan of Python.
