I am currently a consultant (NetTek Ltd) specialising in Internet and telecoms strategy. I was in full-time employment with THUS until March 2005 (from March 1995) as Head of Product Futures with overall responsibility for evaluating and providing technical insight into future technologies (both in the Internet and voice/data areas) and how they could be utilised in the development of new products and services. I also owned THUS’s product roadmap.

Prior to joining THUS, I held the position of Internet Consultant at Telecom Securicor Cellular Radio Ltd (BT Cellnet/O2). I hold a BSc in Microelectronics and Information Processing, and am a member of the IEE, BCS, IEEE (US), and a Fellow of the Royal Institution.
