Welcome to my website, I am a technical minded individual with firm business acumen to ensure businesses meet their requirements using Information Technology.

This website will provide you information on my personal life and professional career, my inspirations, some past clients, client’s testimonials and some technologies I have implemented.

Some of my achievements include having been a part of the senior management team which concluded the successful sale of ITV, BBC & Channel 4 venture (Project Kangaroo) to Arqiva, completing my Masters in IT Security and delivering 100% uptime for blinkBox.com. At the age of 21 I was awarded BT Managers Employee of the Year (2000) and acted as Duty Manager for a BT call centre employing over 300 customer service advisers.

My most recent role at Just-Eat tested my abilities to manage technical business operations for a fast paced international ecommerce company, which urgently required stabilisation for its platform and internal IT systems. The Platform served approximately 5 million hits and 1.2 million orders per month, also annual transactions in excess of $400 million.

At Project Kangaroo I was recruited as Head of IT Operations. Project Kangaroo was the working title for a JV (Joint Venture) between BBC, ITV & Channel 4 to deliver a VOD (Video on Demand) service, my annual budget was in excess of £5m.

As Head of IT Operations for blinkBox Entertainment, I was part of a successful panel which were audited by VC's for funding. I built an affective IT Operations Team and relocated the business in three different offices with zero downtime. I put in place effective Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity policies and procedures.

Previous employment consisted of AtomFilms where at the age of 21 I was employed as Head of IT (Europe), this was a real test for 24/7/365 availability and 99.9*% uptime. AtomFilms ultimately progressed to be purchased by Viacom.

PERSONAL:
As I have passion for the technology, media and entertainment industries I undertook some personal ventures within the London partying sector. I setup Tillate.net which was a website targeted at students within London to view pre-recorded live video footage online and also view pictures of them partying. Tillate.net peaked at 1 million hits a week.

From the success of Tillate.net I setup Private Affair, which was targeted at the affluent Asian society. I hosted parties throughout the year with another two friends, which peaked to over 700 guests for a single event. Both Tillate.net and Private Affair were dependant on well targeted e-marketing and social networking campaigns which I was fully responsible for.

In 2010 a friend and I decided to setup MyAsianCompanion.com, which focused on 50+ socialising events; this was a small success and we were featured on numerous radio stations including the BBC.
