PERSONAL LIFE



My wife Andrea and I have been married for almost 36 years. We have 3 daughters. After my family, my career takes priority in my life.

I regard myself as a responsible, reliable and loyal employee. I enjoy working with people, resolving their problems and guiding / tutoring them through their problems. I take pride in my work and my achievements. I am open minded and not averse to change. I view new projects as a challenge and take pride in seeing them to culmination. I aim to learn as much as possible and believe this to be an on going process. With this in mind I aim to become the best at whatever I do. I enjoy setting goals and achieving those goals.

I spend my free time listing to classical music, walking, reading, sailing, scuba diving, playing golf and learning more about the systems I support.
