Work History

Contracts Consultant

Impact IT

May 2012 - May 2012

I am currently a Development Contract Specialist at Impact 360. Working predominately in the London and South East of the UK. My main focus is within (but not limited to) both Web and Software development, covering technology areas such as Open Source (PHP, LAMP) and Microsoft .NET stack (C#, ASP.NET, ADO.NET, VB.NET) and specializing in technologies such as Javascript (Node.JS, Backbone.JS, jQuery), and CMS such as Drupal, Sitefinity, Squiz, Umbraco, and Episerver.

I am continuously being mentored by my senior peers and also sharing my skills, experience and market knowledge within my team to ensure that collectively we are always the top performers within the industry.

Through my different outlook, approach and contributions, I aim to put my footprint on recruitment, much like the other industries I have actively involved myself in, through my entrepreneurial spirit, positive attitude, and excelled ability to always achieve. I will continue to introduce exceptional people to exceptional companies and provide those around me the opportunities to exceed beyond expectation whilst propelling myself to the top.


Diamonds & Elephants

May 2010 - May 2010

I founded Diamonds & Elephants Lifestyle and Fashion Boutique alongside Bryan Pognant. We operate predominately out of Chicago but have a global audience. We produce high quality, lifestyle t-shirts, sweaters and snapback caps throughout Chicago, California and New York as well as the UK and parts of Australia.

The project was initially funded by ourselves with cash injections from various investors. We work closely with independent boutiques such as Mr Tastees and Chicago based brand JUGRNAUT who provided us with connections such as Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa.

Through our online presence, word-of-mouth, friends, family, launch parties and marketing we have reached out to thousands of people throughout the world and we are continuing to grow exceptionally fast as an established fashion brand.
