I'm a senior architect for Microsoft business intelligence solutions at Hitachi Consulting, working with clients such as the Bank of England, Sky, Experian Footfall and the NHS.  WIth a good twelve years or more designing BI solutions under my belt, I am keen on architecture design, development frameworks and very high quality code.  Although I work with all the SQL Server products including PerformancePoint and PowerPivot, my real specialties are physical and logical architecture, performance tuning, SSIS and SSAS design.

I've spoken at the London user group as well as at various Microsoft events, maintain a blog, and am an active professional consultant.
