About Mat & Mouse
Established in 2009, Mat & Mouse IT Services Ltd is a small business whose aim is to provide high quality computer services to both individuals and businesses in the Doncaster area. In a very short time we are proud to have many satisfied and loyal customers.
As a small business we can provide ultimate flexibility, attention to detail and a human touch (a rarity in the IT world!).
I have had over 20 years experience in IT, mostly as an IT Manager in
the criminal justice sector. I was IT Manager of Doncaster, Rotherham and
Barnsley Magistrates’ Courts before I took on the role of South Yorkshire
Magistrates' Courts' IT Project Manager.
I became very enthusiastic about computers in my early teens, back in the days of the Sinclair ZX-81 and Spectrum. At the time my best friend and I combined my programming skills and his talent for graphic design to create spectrum games, which were published by Alternative Software (Excalibur: Sword of Kings) and Zenobi Software (HIT & A.R.C. - Alien Research Centre).
At Mat & Mouse we are proud to be members of Doncaster Chamber of
Commerce, BNI, and are registered with the Data Protection Act.
When I don't have my head inside a PC, I enjoy time at the gym, astronomy, films and books, and the odd single malt whisky. In the past I presented a radio show with my friend Dave on Doncaster's local Radio Station Sine FM 102.6FM called Radio Trumps.
I graduated from the University of Central Lancashire with a Masters Degree (MSc) in Business Administration & IT in 2000. I have worked in the field of e-commerce for a leading UK Office Products wholesaler. Much of my work involved installing applications on customer's computers, and training them on how to use it! I also helped out a bit with software development. I am currently honing my web design skills (you are currently viewing my efforts!).
I'm a keep fit fanatic, so if you regularly walk around Lakeside, or are out and about in Bessacarr or Cantley, chances are you will have seen me jogging along wearing a silly hat. I regularly take part in fun runs and races. I've completed the Bupa Great North Run three times (in 2007, 2008 & 2009), raising almost £1500 for Meningitis Research Foundation, Marie Curie Cancer Care, and Coeliac UK. I eat cake, therefore I run....
