About me

I’m a digital technology specialist with extensive experience in transforming complex legacy IT, coaching technology teams as they build new digital services and advising organisations on digital transformation.

I coach and advise C-suite level executives, ministers, senior civil servants and CDO/CTOs on building digital capability, setting vision/strategy and leading complex transformation programmes.

I was a co-founder at the UK Government Digital Service and I’ve supported the creation of digital services units around the world, including the Nova Scotia Digital Service and the State of California Alpha team.

I worked on the launch of GOV.UK, am a co-author of the GDS Design Principles, Service Manual and Digital Service Standard and was a member of the Cabinet Office Technology Spend Control Board.

I led teams that transitioned DVLA's IT services back in-house after 22 years. I helped build the teams that delivered new digital services such as view your driving licence, buy and sell vehicles and tax your vehicle.

I've helped organisations such as the Ministry of Justice manage the growing problem of unsustainable and complex legacy technology. I developed the strategy and led the teams to modernise and move the systems supporting Legal Aid to public cloud.

I have a background in software engineering a masters degree in Human Computer Interaction from Swansea University.

I'm a director at Cedyrn and a member of the advisory panel for the Centre for Digital Public Services in Wales.
