Short quote:
Since graduation I have been involved with a number of successful IT/ Internet related businesses at both start-up and later development stages. A few projects have included the development of a convertible bond trading system, building a market leading E-commerce online ordering system for the office stationery industry and leading the development of the world’s most comprehensive online neuroscience-based behaviour mapping instrument (psychological profiling tool in layman terms) used by many investment banks and some of the world’s largest corporate institutions.

I run my own IT company, established in 2002, which is focused on web applications and development of our own Software as a Service (SaaS) web platforms for both content management and travel bookings. Luckily I’m a geek and really enjoy our web and database development work, as well as learning new skills and techniques as web development is constantly evolving.

I’m very happy to be working with a great team at Education Index and helping to build such a comprehensive and useful website to help students make a more informed choice about their future. We have produced a unique database that combines a number of different datasets and I’m looking forward to adding to it even further in the future.

Between lots of computer work and beautiful twin baby boys I don’t have much free time but I wouldn’t have it any other way!
