Installation & Setup: We know it can be troublesome getting an Apple device working on a Windows machine, so leave it to us to set it up correctly.
I'm based on the sunny Kent coast in Whitstable and I primarily work out of my purpose-built shed office.
I worked for the BBC for 12 years, leaving at the end of 2010. Originally joining them as a subtitler, I moved into software development and trained as a development manager, then became a PRINCE2-certified project manager. As a PM, I managed medium-sized projects, with budgets often exceeding £250k. I specialised in Windows software development, but also trained in the design and implementation of server architecture.
Whilst working for the BBC, I completed a range of Microsoft-approved training courses. I offered desktop and server support in a busy broadcast and IT critical environment. I migrated users across networks and managed complex training and testing plans.
An Apple user since 1995, I studied and trained as an Apple Support Professional for Desktop and Server Systems. I served as an Apple advisor on a handful of projects and bids. After leaving the BBC, my first job at The Whitstable Company Company was designing and installing a Final Cut Pro video editing server environment for a production company in London.
