C#, C++, SQL Developer for 28 years. Pluralsight and Packt author. Microsoft certified.

Currently Software Architect at Zapinamo, based in the UK. Lead software developer / team leader / tutor / author.

I've been writing software since 1985. I pride myself on designing and creating software that is first class. That means it has to be fast, scalable, and with good use of design patterns.

I have done everything from risk analysis and explosion modelling, banking systems, to highly scalable multi-threaded arrival and departure screens in many leading airports, to state of the art wireless warehouse systems.
