About me

I am a software developer in the UK, and specialise in Microsoft technologies.

Starting as a web developer working on the British Airways website at Leighton, I progressed to .net development at Aspire Technology Solutions.  A lot of my work has involved SharePoint, and I have implemented numerous solutions using the platform.  Recently I have been involved in a large-scale enterprise application utilising WCF services, and also a large BI databse using SQL Server technologies.
