Hello@ I’m Chris and I work as a Staff Consultant within VMware Professional Services. Previously I worked as a self employed consultant working with many companies across the UK.

I’ve been working in the IT industry since 1999 and I have been lucky enough to work with a multitude of technologies including networks, storage, a lot of Microsoft, VMware and *nix.

This blog will be mostly about VMware related technologies, however I will also cover other areas that I’ll invariably be involved in which peak my interest. For example, I use Ubiquiti UniFi networking equipment at home, so I may cover this.

Hopefully this blog will become useful to some, so please leave some feedback and feel free to ask any questions.

Finally I’d like to thank Dan Johnson as it was his site who eventually gave me a kick to get certified and start sharing my knowledge.


I’ll endeavour to keep this up to date, however for the most accurate then take a look at my Credly page.
