I didn't start my career as a web developer. In a previous job, I worked on information security and data protection. As part of that role, I setup a fully ISO27001 & ISO9001 certified management system. Find out more on my information security page, or take a look at my CV.
Before moving into IT, I did a Ph.D in climate science at Cambridge University, and I have been lucky enough to live in several countries. Whilst living in Rio de Janeiro, I learned Portuguese and wrote for the Rio Times. You can read about some of my adventures on my blog.
