I am an enthusiastic and well motive Communications Engineer with excellent experience and skill in end-to-end service delivery using IP networks and VSAT.  I am seeking to develop my Engineering career and discipline within the telecommunications market. My main area of interest lies with emerging technologies and how these can be developed and deployed in remote locations with limited or no communications infrastructure.



Having worked in the remote communications industry for my entire professional career, I have built up a range technical and engineering skills including:


·         VSAT RF systems

·         Fixed, auto acquire and stabilized antenna systems

·         SCPC and TDMA network deployment and operation

·         IP networking

·         IP communication optimization technologies

·         End-to-end communications systems design and implementation

·         Analytical approach to testing and fault finding systems


At the core of my skill base and experience is a strong understanding of proper engineering discipline, which I feel is imperative within the profession. I display this through excellent communication skills both written and verbal along with a logical and analytical approach to challenges.
