In the beginning… I started my career as an intranet developer, writing some very bad code in ASP classic for a local council. Not long after that, the world was on the brink of the much-hyped Microsoft .NET previews, and I lovingly and happily converted from being an ASP geek into an ASP.NET geek. And that’s where it all started, really (I used to play with Perl/CGI too so I’m not entirely non-open source!).

In recent years I have focused much more on solution architecture and spend a lot of my time optimising software solutions (web or desktop based, or any combination of the two) to meet accessibility and usability standards. I am a usability evangelist and I like to make things as simple as possible (but not simpler, to quote a very clever gentleman).

Long story short, since then I have built and consulted on over 50 SME web sites and regularly enjoy consulting on a variety of innovative projects. In my spare time I play piano, consult on a range of projects and like to tinker with the arduino and Netduino platforms.
