TESTIMONIALS

someone

Nigel Harris SQL Server DBA/Developer at BaxterStorey

I have worked with Lee for 5 years now and have always found him to be the consummate professional. His calm, no-nonsense leadership style combined with an unerring ability to cut through the distractions to get to the real nub of the question make him a highly valuable asset in the workplace. On top of that he has a very positive, encouraging outlook which makes him a pleasure to work with. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Lee and hope to continue working with him in the years to come

someone

Naomi ArcherBid Manager at Ascom Wireless Solutions

I worked with Lee for 4 years at AEA in different roles, most recently on bids. Lee is a calm "go to" person who you know will help regardless of his other commitments. He is always reliable and is an approachable leader - providing guidance to those in the IT community in a manner that enables people to develop themselves professionally. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Lee (he also has a great sense of humour when working under pressure!) and hope to again in the future.

INTERESTS

Technology

I'm a geek and proud. My colleagues think I'm an out and out Apple fan boy and there is not a little truth in that, but i'm a keen admirer and user of a wide range of technology.

Photography

Wish I was better. Wish i had more spare time to get better. I use a Sony NEX7 and NEX5

Cycling

Recently got interested in cycling, much it seems like the rest of the country. You might see me struggling up hills in Staffordshire at the weekend. I ride on a Specialized Rockhopper Comp MTB and Trek CrossRip Cyclocross.
