I have a varied background ranging from Enterprise Architecture, Sustainability and Community Development, Tourism & Economic Development, Business Administration, Communications and Strategic ICT.
I am not an “Expert” or a “Guru” but I do like trying new things and enabling others to do the same. I also enjoy sharing ideas and talking with like-minded people.
Currently my working life is divided between a number of roles (paid and voluntary).
Currently I am the Digital Communications Manager at Devon County Council, which is essentially about championing and developing the digital agenda within the council as well as being responsible for the councils Corporate Website and Intranet.
I’m also a Non Executive Director at Cosmic – A leading social enterprise based in Devon offering a range of high quality I.T. services.
As a Non-executive director of Cosmic we have responsibilities in the following areas – Strategy, Performance, Risk and People.
I’m also a School Governor within my community – Vice Chair of Governing Body, Chair of Resources Committee and Lead Governor for ICT.
I’m also a member of the Exeter Consortium Management Board – this is in my capacity as a School Governor.
I’m inspired and motivated by the space that exists in the middle of technology, people and participation.
I am fascinated and keen to explore how people interact with information and technology to enable and facilitate local and global change.
I’m passionate about the role of schools in the community, the future of teaching and education as well School Governance.
I’m very committed to ethical and social business and in particular the role of social enterprise in society.
I work to live and live to have fun.
I am married to Sharon and we have two boys – we also have a black labrador.
I enjoy cycling, karate, walking, having fun and spending quality time with my family.
