I have the honour of being Coeo’s first full-time project manager and am passionate about helping our talented consultants deliver projects that make a real difference for our customers. My role is varied and interesting: no two projects are exactly the same, and working with customers in different sectors means that I get to learn something on each new engagement.
When I’m not working I can sometimes be found tinkling the ivories and playing golf, although not usually at the same time!
I am a Database Administrator at Coeo, after graduating from Cardiff University with a degree in Computer Science in 2015, I became a consultant then rotated into database administration.

Some of my responsibilities include identifying new business, proposing solutions and providing consultancy support to existing customers around any pains they might be facing with SQL Server, Azure or Power BI.

I’m a database administrator in the managed services team. In 2016, shortly after completing an IT apprenticeship I moved down from Sheffield to join the team here at Coeo. I enjoy the level of exposure to all things SQL that Coeo provide as this is helping me build on the skills and knowledge needed to gain the MCSA certification. Outside of Coeo you’ll find me as far away as one could get from a server; hiking in some remote mountainous location or enjoying a spot of wild camping.
