Personal Profile

From a very early early age, I've had a passion for technology. I enjoy learning how things work and then using my knowledge to solve real-world problems.

During my mid-thirties I discovered (accidentally) that I got a lot more satisfaction from helping others and so I pursued a career in the care industry.
