My background is as a software engineer, including 11 years as a Windows C++ developer at PricewaterhouseCoopers and 8 years as a C developer, database developer and Oracle DBA at Seven Telematics.

The latter included significant Oracle PL/SQL development as well as full installation, administration and support of their Linux-based Oracle 11g RAC cluster.


After leaving Seven Telematics I took a career break to study Microsoft SQL Server, T-SQL, SSIS, SSRS and SSAS, following which I gained MCSA and MCSE certification for SQL Server.

This lead me to my next position, as a SQL Server ETL developer at IQVIA in Brighton.

I’m currently doing contract work through my company Kiyoro Ltd, building an AWS-based IoT system for a client in the North of England.
