About Me Hi there, I’m Ciaran.

A pleasure to virtually meet you! I’m an accomplished technical architect based in the United Kingdom, specialising in cloud and network solutions for network operators, carriers, enterprise and SaaS companies.

My background.

I’m an accomplished computer scientist that studied at Newcastle University. During my career, I’ve worked a variety of contracts and roles which has given me a wealth of knowledge and experience over the past 8 years, including travelling internationally and working in places like New York City.

Keeping up-to-date.

I would describe myself as a technical evangelist, obsessed with trying new and upcoming technologies and applying them to different environments. It’s why I keep two fully operational (and physical!) lab environments: I can design and trial complex scenarios to see if a particular product or technology on the market is suited to the task.
