About Me

Living in Broadwater, Worthing I am proud to be the Chair of Governors at a local school and I now have over 20 years of experience in working in the Information Techology industry.

My passion for computing started while at school, when as part of the work experience program I spent a week working at one of Worthing’s premiere computer stores “Worthing Computer Centre”.  After my work experience ended I was lucky enough to be offered a part-time job working evenings and weekends at the store.  

In 2000 I achieved the qualification of Microsoft Certified Professional.  In December 2001 after passing a further four Microsoft exams I then achieved Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer status.   

I then worked for a network installation company based in Hastings called DAT, where we installed a new computer network for the Travel Agent Thomson Travel.  Following this i worked for a computer solutions company in Bognor Regis called Connect Computers where we setup and supported new computer systems for Veterinary Practices.  

It was during my employment with Connect Computers that I fell ill with Testicular cancer.  During my recovery I was unfortuntely made redundant.  Having almost single-handedly running Connect Computers I felt it was time I started my own company and in 2007 I setup Aranea Creations.
