Initially hailing from the technical side of IT, Patrick now has significant experience in organizational-level strategy, security, and best practice.

When not in front of a computer Patrick loves spending family time outnumbered by his wife and daughters. As a keen orienteer, he can regularly be found in the depths of a forest or on top of a hill, studying a map and trying to work out which direction he should be running.
