About

Hi there!

I'm a tech-sector veteran with over 30 years of experience. I started off in a small networking consultancy firm in London and am now one of a very small number of Distinguished Engineers at Cisco. Right now, I'm leading an early-stage internal startup, exploring Sustainability, ESG & Digital business opportunities as well as leading the development of a new strategic innovation program, building a systematic framework for direction setting for internal innovation efforts.

I've been an intrapreneur, taking an internal startup from inception to revenues of over $10M, as well as leading the development of Cisco’s distributed edge compute architecture for Connected & Automated Vehicles working with automotive manufacturers in Europe, Japan and the US.

In my journey, I've helped to design, deploy and troubleshoot national and international data networks around the world, led teams to deliver analysis of major network outages to the C-suite, did an 'out, up and back' career move (long story!), have multiple patents, learnt basic Japanese, did an Executive MBA in a year and I'm a 4th Dan Black Belt in Taekwon-do.

I'm an internal coach and mentor at Cisco, helping people figure out how they can progress and hope to be able to help you on your career journey, too.
