Spark and Project “Vision”
More than a Developer or Designer, I have seen most value added were I have been able to provide the spark to being a project and the Project Vision. Helping to craft the development of a project, and give it roots in reality that are productive from the outset. My strong understanding of Merlin Planning, Process Automation, Mission Control logic and NLP Modelling, make this possible, and coupled with a real passion for people and making the difference, this is an aspect that sits well with my love of new ideas and synergies.
Currently I am a strong advocate for Open Source development and in bridging the gap between the “IT Department” and the “Business”. In the new economy, as ever there is only Business, and all parts must act as partners to ensure success
I believe in Drupal, and WordPress, but I’m also old enough, to know that all have their uses.
I have been lucky to have worked with some great people (Luke, Nick, Paul, Jeremy, Vickie, Steve.. ) on some very memorable projects, many can’t be disclosed due to NDAs, but these are some of the live projects and turning points.
