Support Engineer

What got you /involved in IT? 

I was working in an office full of up-and-coming technology and found that I was being charged by my own company to fix IT issues. So, I figured I could fix them myself, and ended up working at a design firm as IT Support before moving to Labyrinth Technology.

What do you do at Labyrinth? 

My job is to provide front line support to issues that arise from our clients, and in some cases act as their Technical Account Manager. This could be regarding a diverse range of topics, both for hardware and software, but in all cases my aim is to help our clients and their employees to work smoothly and efficiently with their Technology.

Away from work, what do you get up to? 

I consider myself a family man, bringing up 2 children in the ways of the world, but my personal interests revolve around playing video games, playing and watch sport, riding my motorcycle and supporting the mighty Chelsea. In 2012 I managed to combine the last 2 by doing a road to trip to Munich to watch the Champions League final, and another in 2013 to Amsterdam for the Europa League Final. Fortunately, Chelsea didn’t disappoint, winning both times!

What is your favourite book, and why?

12 Rules for Life, by Jordan Peterson. Why? Life is tough and sometimes it’s good to have some help trying to work out how to navigate through it.

Where do you like to go on holiday? 

I don’t really have a favourite, but I try to go somewhere that I haven’t been to before, and that has plenty to see. For example, I have been inside the Pyramids at Giza, up the Pyramid in Chichen Itza, and visited many temples in Cambodia. I believe there is always somewhere new to go and see something amazing.
