About Me

I’m a career project and programme manager with over a decade of experience in the nuclear sector. Prior to this I worked in sales & marketing and finance.

Before I started a career in project management I played professional Rugby. Following this time I took up the sport of triathlon and have since completed four Ironman events across the world. I released a book about how I trained for the events.

I have taken many of the leadership and management skills from my time in sport and I have authored an eBook all about it.

Some of the other skills I have developed has been my discipline, attitude and work ethic. Plus I like a bit of fun and banter around the office.
