I lead DataX Connect’s EMEA Projects Team. We specialise in the permanent placements of Project Management, Engineering, Planning and Commercial Specialists into Data Centre projects across the UK, Ireland and Europe. I have been recruiting across Engineering and Construction for 10 years, placing candidates across the globe. As a team we partner with contractors and consultancies who are at development, construction, and commissioning stages of their projects.  


I’m a proud family man with two incredible boys (George and Harvey) and partner Charlotte. I’m also a huge sports fan and follow the best team on the South Coast…Portsmouth!

I travelled the world when I was 21 an came home 5 years later with a son, dog, and slight Aussie twang!

Although my extended travelling days are over, I love visiting new places and trying the local cuisines! Corfu is the families top pick currently!
