I am a wholly independent technical consultant working with professional audio-visual systems, information & communication technologies, and more.

During four decades I have enjoyed roles ranging from AV technician in a major teaching hospital to regional manager in a global communications company.  My knowledge and experience are extensive.

Since becoming an independent consultant in July 2009, I have provided specialist knowledge to Designers, Architects, Technical Consultants, Interpretive Consultants, Media Producers, Venue Operators, Construction Project Teams and others who require specialist expertise to get the best results for their specific application.

My considerable experience in interpreting concept briefs, enables me to project manage suppliers and contractors in a pragmatic and controlled manner to deliver client aspirations.

I understand the process from end to end, right through design; specification; budgeting; procurement; delivery; assembly; installation; programming; commissioning; training; documentation; to handover and sign off.
