I'm a self-confessed news junkie who began my digital existence in the pre-GUI era. I thoroughly enjoy thoughtful, critical analysis of current events. When not scanning the horizon for new blog articles on mobile connectivity, 5G and IoT, I manage the communications activities for the International Mobility Services business unit within Orange Business, both in France and internationally.
