Value Proposition

My diverse experience displays my adaptability to changing business environments. This enables me to quickly understand your requirements, leading to a short learning cycle, minimised training costs and hence a fast route to full effectiveness.

Summary

I am presently employed as a Controls Engineer, with prime focus on creating and updating process control displays used in environments such as offshore oil rigs, refineries and chemical plants.

Prior to this I had a business lead role, providing product management for a range of solid state liquid level and fibre optoelectronic products, with sales revenues of around USD 9 million, showing around 100% growth during my tenure. Previously I worked in an environment requiring an understanding of the big picture married to an ability to focus on attention to detail, such that document change control per ISO9001 was fully complied with. Prior to this I worked in a high volume electronic sensor manufacturing environment, focusing on developing technical relationships with key global customers to understand their sensing requirements and hence enhance the value to those customers of working with my company.

My earlier career focused on the control of steam turbine-generators and auxiliary plant, including developing control philosophies and designing and maintaining the associated control, monitoring and protection equipment.

I also have a website design consultancy, SiteGuru.co.uk, that I run in my spare time from home. This consultancy enables me to keep on top of the latest trends in website design and technologies, such that I can create custom websites and code scripts as required by my clients. These websites and scripts may be plain HTML (or XHTML) per W3C standards, they may incorporate JavaScript for client-side control, or they may include some server-side pre-processing using ASP (in VBScript or JScript) or PHP. There may also be a back-end database of various flavours, such as Oracle, MS SQL, mySQL or MS Access.

I have also been a Full member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc. (IEEE) since May '95, and an Associate member since October '94.
