|Systems Thinking||I have experience analysing and considering development within the context of the bigger picture, both from an interdependency perspective as well as how business processes will interact with the new software.|

|Attention to Detail||My personality type tends towards attention to detail, and this helps me to be excellent at scoping requirements for projects more precisely.|

I'm a self-confessed geek, and as such I spend at least a portion of my personal time still in front of a computer, working on personal projects. When time and circumstance allows, I'm an avid sailor, and I try to get away for at least a week of sailing every year.
Art and history from cultures other than my own fascinate me. I've spent many a day exploring museums and galleries in cities around the world as I travel.
I'm also a keen reader, particularly science fiction and fantasy. For every non-fiction book I read, I'll probably read at least twenty or thirty fiction novels.
