Full Biography

I tend to be active on EE between 08:00 and 18:00 GMT.

I work as a Senior IT Systems Engineer for Ability IT.  Ability IT is based in Kingston Upon Hull, UK and we offer IT Support Services to SMBs in the East Yorkshire area.

Over the last 9 Years I've dealt with all kinds of environments and situations, ranging from a single PC blue screening to Server disasters and everything in between.  I volunteer my knowledge on Experts Exchange in order to help fellow IT Staff and Professionals with their problems.  It's my way of giving something back to the IT Community whilst using the platform to keep my knowledge up-to-date and current - The t-shirts are a nice little bonus as well.

I will sometimes participate in questions solely if I feel that I can extract useful information out of a member which will benefit other experts answering the question.

I am available to hire via the company I work for.  See the link at the bottom.
