What does your business do? 

I am an Independent IT Contractor, working mainly as a Solutions Architect, in mobile banking and finance. I help to articulate users requirements\needs into a design, and work with various software development teams to build and release the end product. 

How long have you been doing it? How long have you been at Desklodge? 

I've been working in software development for around 20+ years, and have worked as a Solution Architect for 10+ years.

I've been at Desklodge for approximately one month now.

What’s your favourite thing about your job? 

I like the multifaceted aspect of my job. Having to take an idea or requirement, and design the system, taking into account areas which on the surface may not seem obvious, such as security (how to prevent the software from being hacked), how the system is to be deployed, and strategies to deal with fail over, as well as any regulatory requirements.  

What’s your favourite thing about Desklodge?

I like the variety at Desklodge, I enjoy the decor, it gives me something different to look at when taking a break from my laptop. I've also got to meet some interesting people, who I probably would never had met, had I not joined. Just as importantly, I'm productive, its a nice, pleasant environment to work in.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I enjoy running, but do not get to run as much as I'd like to. Also enjoy playing squash and spending time with my family. I'm learning to create online animation, although at a particularly slow pace.
