Hello. My name is Adrian Cantrill.

I was born in the UK, spent time here and here but moved near Brisbane Australia in April 2011. I live with my partner Nathalie and our four daughters Roffle, Truffles, Penny and Winkie, they’re all amazing, and none are human.

I have a small company called Cantrill Consulting, which helps individuals and businesses through a mixture of IT Consultancy and Technical training. Please do contact me if you are interested in either. I’m not like most consultants, and I’m happy to do ad-hoc hourly and daily work.

I love everything tech-related and I’ve spent the last 20 or so years as a senior IT project engineer and solutions architect, specialising in cloud, emerging architectures, high performance systems, blockchain and security. I love helping others grow and develop their careers and so two years ago I quit my full-time job and started creating online technical training courses.

I’m addicted to certifications and personal development. I love to mentor other people, helping them to gain skills and certifications in various IT fields. I have over 35 IT certifications, including all of the ones available for the dominant cloud platform Amazon Web Services. I’ve been one of the first in the world to obtain certain certifications and I challenged myself and others to do three AWS certs, on the first day they were available at re:invent 2016 (thats 9 hours of exams, in one day).

I’m passionate about animal-rights, environmental issues, home automation and blockchain.

I love to talk to interesting people about interesting topics, so feel free to contact me here

If I can help you in any way, please let me know!
