About this website

I have a passion for running and outdoor adventure.  I use this website as a platform to discuss these topics, as well as a forum to discuss professional project management, leadership and business analysis in the geospatial, environmental and management information sectors.  Commentary includes management of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Remote Sensing, geomatics, Decision Support Systems (DSS) and business process re-engineering.

By continuing to share expertise and utilise social media and emerging technologies, I regularly contribute to theory development and practical application of project and programme management techniques.  I also contribute to the outdoor adventure community through sharing my experience and ever evolving interest in outdoor pursuits such as running, and more recently ultra running.
