    By October 2014, I will have been in project management for a full decade. Most of the past 10 years have been spent working in telecommunications and IT projects, primarily software development, but also most other aspects of telecommunications and IT. I am particularly good at planning, scheduling and risk management. I have a Masters degree in Economic Policy, which started out simply as a hobby lecturing and teaching economics in my spare time, but has been surprisingly useful in managing projects.
